Cadets lend HOME a helping hand
Military and civilian members of the ADFA Catholics and Friends (ACAF) headed by Officer Cadet Daniel Mahon, together with their chaplain Deacon John Lim, went to HOME in Queanbeyan to help with gardening, cleaning and maintenance.
This was the second time members of ACAF had done this activity in their response to the Year of Mercy.
Such activities help potential officers to develop personal values of service and respect for others, which are integral in the wider ADF.
This is part of the ACAF Community Outreach Program initiated this year to expose members to the benefits of community service, such as compassion and humility, while providing help.
HOME is a community initiative providing a home for 19 men and women who live with enduring mental illness.
