Employee testimonials

"People should feel at home in their community. To feel at home means our clients and staff have the freedom to be who they are, to live in an environment of acceptance, to know that they belong.  To belong, you have to be missed, and when you are missed you are welcomed home. That contributes to the vibe that is experienced by our clients and staff at Churches of Christ in Queensland everyday, with whom I am proud to do life with. "

- Bryan Mason, Director,  Seniors and Supported Living

"What I like best about my role is that my day-to-day activities are a great balance between the physical home maintenance, interacting with our clients and meeting a variety of people.  Things that we take for granted and which might be a minor issue for us, like changing a light bulb or fixing a squeaky door, can mean the world to them and make a huge difference in their lives. Our clients are a treasure chest of life experiences and knowledge and they are often willing to share that with someone - I have that privilege."

- Burnard Cross, Field Worker, Community Care

"I am always touched by the love and care our carers provide to our children and young people despite the difficult, challenging  and often heart breaking circumstances our carers and children have experienced. Our carers are our unsung heroes and give everything they have to provide for them so they can begin to heal and grow as individuals."

- Suzanne Smith, Service Manager, Child, Youth and Family Care

"I have been a housing support worker for two years and in this time have found many challenges working with homeless families. Not only do they suffer from lack of affordable housing but they have to overcome many personal barriers. I find helping people overcome their personal challenges as well as their housing situation makes me feel I am making a difference to the community and the families that are affected by homelessness."

Client testimonials

"I felt at home from the very first day of moving into the village. I plan on spending time volunteering at the Community Centre and bringing a little more sunshine into everyone's lives."

- Felicity, Resident, Moonah Park Retirement Village

"We have nothing but praise and admiration for the North Buderim Early Childhood Centre and all its staff. It’s always been easy and enjoyable, with wonderful supportive staff who have embraced our children. We’ve enjoyed watching our girls develop friendships and important life-long social skills, especially as their personality traits differ so greatly!"
