Mission Australia was founded in 1997 as a partnership of Nationwide mission groups, all were originally founded due to the growing need for food, clothing, and housing among struggling Australians. They were each founded on the values of compassion, integrity, respect, perseverance and celebration. These values have followed Mission Australia throughout the years to establish an ethos of helping disadvantaged people achieve independence.
