Villa Maria is a values-based organisation providing quality services and life enhancing opportunities for older people and people with a disability.
From humble beginnings as the Catholic Braille Writers Association in 1907, Villa Maria has grown to become one of Victoria's largest not-for-profit providers of disability, education and senior services, with more than 60 programs supporting 5,000 people across metropolitan and regional Victoria.
Services offered by Villa Maria range from specialist education and early childhood intervention for children with disabilities or developmental delays, to community based and in-home support services for older people and people with a disability, carer respite options and residential aged care.
Every day of the year, over 900 staff and 300 volunteers respond to the unique needs of the people and families we support with openness, innovation, creativity and flexibility.
To be a part of Villa Maria is to experience the true notion of community.
This brings us to Ritchies IGA and its terrific community-minded partnership with charities, schools and clubs. Customers can shop at their local Ritchies IGA and help to support the essential services that an organisation such as Villa Maria provides each day.
Every time you shop at Ritchies IGA and nominate Villa Maria, you are contributing vital funds to assist our essential work with people who have special needs in our community.
