About Us

 

Hi there from the team at DRERS! We are a non-profit Christian charitable organisation providing emergency relief to people in need of support in the south-west of the Yarra Ranges Council. You do not need to be on Centrelink benefits to receive our assistance. Our service is confidential and non-judgemental. We offer help to all people, regardless of race, religion or belief.

We are supported by various local churches, linked in to the Foodbank and accept donations from kind ♥ individuals. We acknowledge the generous support of Yarra Ranges Council with their funding of this project.
