Message from Cairns Regional Council e-news – Volume 33, 25 January 2018
The driving force behind St John’s Community Care since its establishment more than 20 years ago, Theo Bacalakis has led the growth of the organisation. Having started as a daycare centre in 1996, St John’s Community Care now also offers aged care, respite, disability support, multicultural support, housing assistance and transport services. The organisation’s reach has expanded into the Torres Strait, Townsville and Brisbane, employing more than 370 staff. But at the heart of this now large not-for-profit organisation is Theo’s original objective to simply help those in our community who are in need of assistance. Theo has readily given his time and energy to ensuring the ongoing success of the service.
