elishacare has provided a vital service to the Maroondah (and surrounding) community for the past 10 years. During this time we have assisted more than 300 people. We are self-funded, apart from an occasional community grant and rely upon the generosity of donations. To our knowledge, there is no other organisation providing a holistic service such as ours.
