About us

About The Rev. Bill Crews Foundation

The Rev. Bill Crews Foundation provides assistance to address the cause and effect of homelessness and poverty, as well as unemployment. Indeed, we succeed in achieving this through a combination of caring services like food provision, social welfare and education support.

Our history guides our future

Our founder, Rev. Bill Crews, has been supporting the homeless and vulnerable for more than 30 years. Over that time the vision of the Foundation has grown.

Our famous Loaves & Fishes Free Restaurant and food vans have served over 9 million meals to the hungry. In addition, we also have an onsite community centre, with a healthcare clinic and welfare support.

The caring services provided by the team at The Rev. Bill Crews Foundation have benefitted countless people. In fact the Foundation is now acknowledged as a leading frontline charity.

Rev. Crews and his team are passionate about making an immediate and tangible difference to the lives of those in need.

Our mission

We aim to advance education and employment opportunities for young people and we strive to relieve the poverty, homelessness, distress and disadvantage of individuals and families.

In doing this we advocate for disenfranchised, disempowered, impoverished people and seek to be a voice for ’voiceless’ members of society.

Our structure

To carry out our important work, the Bill Crews Foundation enlists The Exodus Foundation (ABN: 47 342 342 713) and The Bill Crews Charitable Trust (ABN: 74 622 585 856) in the delivery of services to thousands of vulnerable people in need, including those experiencing homelessness, disadvantage and increasingly, food insecurity.

The Exodus Foundation and The Bill Crews Charitable Trust work together to meet the increasing demand for help through a variety of programs and services, both onsite at Ashfield and increasingly mobile to meet where the need is most.
