Consulting with local people and working with like-minded organisations alongside all levels of government, JCS continues to grow, adapting to the emerging needs of our communities.

A History of Community Engagement

Georges River Community Service Inc. (GRCS) commenced operation on the 5th October 1971, as a result of the local Interchurch Council seeing the need for a Neighbourhood Centre in the area. The name of the service was chosen to reflect the State Elective where it was situated. The service was originally located at Pasley House, 63 Pitt Street Mortdale. The building was named Pasley House in recognition of the steadfast faith, irrepressible spirit and dynamic energy of Betty and Lesley Pasley in the formation of GRCS.

In 2008 a Community Focus Group was organised to update the corporate image of the Centre and to change its name to better reflect its location in the local community. After community consultation and feedback, the name of the service was changed to Mortdale Community Services Inc. (MCS) and its corporate colour was changed to fuschia pink to highlight MCS’ identity and enhance recognition in the local community.

JCS continues to provide much needed services to the community due to the ongoing commitment and support offered by our volunteers. Our various programs offer opportunities for volunteers to build on personal skills and experience. JCS currently has over 70 volunteers working in a range of areas. Areas of work available include – visiting, shopping and sitting with an older person, helping with social activities for the aged, fundraising, promoting the Centre, assisting in the Occasional Child Care Centre, Adult Leisure Learning tutors, English tutors, office duties or becoming a member of the Management Committee.
