Welcome to VMCH Corpus Christi Community Greenvale

Corpus Christi Community Greenvale is a longstanding service that has been providing compassionate care and support to older men facing adversity since 1977. In December 2023, Corpus Christi Community Greenvale joined like-minded, values driven organisation VMCH, to ensure residents maintained a secure and nurturing environment, and offering stability to dedicated staff, well into the future.

Corpus Christi Community Greenvale offers a safe haven and support to marginalised older men who have experienced homelessness, battled addiction, or face complex health challenges. We strive to provide them with a fresh start, one that is safe, secure, and ingrained with a sense of independence, all within a vibrant community.

Our history

Founded in 1974 by Mother Teresa and her Missionaries of Charity, Corpus Christi Community Greenvale was established as a refuge for men facing personal hardships.

In 1977, the Missionaries of Charity entrusted the care of Corpus Christi Community Greenvale to the Archdiocese of Melbourne. The Australian Jesuits, in collaboration with the Sisters of Mercy, were invited by Church leaders to manage the facility. These dedicated priests and nuns, along with volunteers, lived alongside and provided unwavering support to the residents.

Admissions

We warmly welcome admission inquiries from individuals, family members, friends, as well as referrals from agencies within the aged care, mental health, hospital, homeless, and community services sectors.

Corpus Christi Community Greenvale offers aged care funded placements for older men who require personal care and assistance. We also provide a welcoming home for residents with fewer personal care needs but who seek secure, affordable housing and the camaraderie of a supportive community.

To start the application process, please download and complete the Resident Application Form. You can submit the completed forms via email to cccg@vmch.com.au or by fax at (03) 9070 8399.

Additionally, it encompasses all personal and medical care costs, provided that assets remain below $51,500.00. Should your assets exceed this threshold, additional charges may apply, calculated based on your individual financial circumstances. These fees are regulated by the Australian Government.

Unfunded residents are also expected to allocate a portion of their pension to cover their day-to-day living expenses.
