Ongoing needs in Cana Communities

Cana’s mission is to companion those living on the margins of social and economic breakdown, are lonely, homeless or suffering from mental ill-health, addiction or other factors which may marginalise them from mainstream society. We do this by building a positive family environment providing unconditional support and acceptance, through which we help restore a sense of feeling valued.

Companions join the residents every day to spend time, give guidance, help with appointments, share meals and stay overnight. 

Help can be given via meal preparation and sharing, going on picnics, outings and excursions, companioning, market days, farming, administration and overnight stays. 

Mentoring and support is provided to all volunteers.
