About us

We belong to the wider global Marist community
We are a Catholic organisation that strives for positive change in the lives of young people

Marist180 belongs to the wider global Marist community of schools, welfare agencies, universities and colleges, youth advocacy, and young adult ministry that has a presence in 81 countries. We provide a range of programs and services to help young people create positive change in their lives.


We believe that when a young person feels connected to a supportive community and has access to education, accommodation, and employment, they can achieve their goals. That’s why we aim to empower young people and their families, so they can build their own bright future.


Today, Marist180 has more than 50 homes operating in Sydney, the Hunter, Western NSW, and the ACT, and more than 500 people providing support to approximately 1300 people annually. As a social service Catholic organisation, Marist180 is a registered charity, governed by a board of directors and is under the trusteeship of the Marist Brothers Star of the Sea Province.

To raise children, we must love them, and love them all equally

Our logo
Our logo contains two parts, the Marist name, and the number 180.

'Marist' represents our origins, and the '180' represents our goal of turning lives around 180 degrees for the better.

The 180 graphic style represents continual movement and momentum of change.
