Our mission

Our Catholic values underpin the work we do.

Here at VMCH (Villa Maria Catholic Homes), our services are as diverse as the people we support.

 

Our values underpin the work we do. As a Catholic, for-purpose organisation, love, joy, courage and hospitality aren’t just words to us, they guide us in everything we do.

While we’ve been around for over a century, we’re always moving forward. We stay true to who we are by supporting people and families to live their best lives, providing a place to call home and spaces to learn and grow.

Our history

On July 1, 2015, Villa Maria Catholic Homes was born.

Two very similar Catholic, values based, for-purpose organisations merged to provide a stronger, more diverse range of services to meet the needs of older people, children and adults with disabilities, their families and carers.

Of particular interest is that both organisations were created by ordinary people who saw a need and sought ways to meet them.

The decision to merge saw two thriving organisations build on their respective, significant histories and develop and expand their diverse services. Today, VMCH (as we have been known since April 2019) provides early learning and therapy, specialist education, disability services, affordable homes, residential aged care, retirement living and at-home aged care to more than 7,600 people across Victoria.

Here at VMCH, our services are as diverse as the people we support.

Our values underpin the work we do. As a Catholic for-purpose organisation, compassion, respect and inclusion aren’t just words to us, they guide us in everything we do.

While we’ve been around for over a century, we’re always moving forward. Always staying true to who we are by supporting people and families to live their best lives; providing a place to call home and spaces to learn and grow.
