Our promise to you

Without your loyal support, we couldn't do what we do. Lazarus Community Centre Geelong relies on our great team, mostly volunteers, and the kind donations from our community to help those in our community who need it most.

It is our promise to keep doing everything we can to provide a supportive environment at Lazarus Community Centre.
