Now known as "MiCare Ltd New Hope Foundation" following our recent merger with Dutchcare Ltd we have been providing not-for-profit settlement, welfare, advocacy and individual support and referral services for migrants, refugees and culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) clients since 1981.

Established originally as the Prahran Migrant Resource Centre we have since grown to become a major provider of services to our multicultural community across Melbourne and regional Victoria.

In October 2016, New Hope Foundation merged with Dutchcare with each organisation's services complementing the others to form MiCare as an expansion into the future of CALD Community Services.

The late Mr Frank Crean, former Treasurer and Deputy Prime Minister of Australia, was the Founding Chairperson of the New Hope Foundation.

The values and principles that drive the work of this organisation were established by Mr Crean and his legacy continues through our work.

There are few people of whom it can be said that the world is a better place because of them, in Frank Crean's case this is a fitting epitaph.

Donations of $2 or more to the New Hope Foundation are Tax Deductible.

Asylum seekers have fled homeland conflict and are seeking protection in Australia.
Asylum seekers are classified differently to refugees and their aid and financial rights are less.

The majority of asylum seekers that we assist are on Bridging Visas, with limited work rights and an income below that of the lowest Centrelink pension. Most have absolutely nothing when we meet them.

We receive referrals directly from government funded Case Managers (Red Cross, AMES, Life Without Barriers); from word of mouth; and from allied agencies such as Hobsons Bay Refugee Network Inc.
