Who We Are

Hope Community Services is a not-for-profit, faith based organisation operating from a Christian   heritage. We have served the community of Perth for over 100 years and provide much needed support services to people affected by alcohol and drugs – young people, adults, their families and communities.

The way people use drugs and alcohol can  effect everyone.   Understanding what happens for individuals, families and communities that are impacted on by the misuse/abuse of alcohol and drugs is important.

Services provided by the Goldfields Community Alcohol & Drug Service (GCADS) are about working together with those seeking support so that people, families and their communities can   invest in their own care to ensure changes made are positive and long term.
