About Us

Brainchild of philanthropist, Sarah Darling and the Jimmy’s Foundation board, Jimmy’s is run by YMCA Victoria, an organisation which has been successfully supporting and caring for young people and their families for generations. The collaborative partnership is one based on a shared vision, values, trust and commitment to helping the youth population in the area.
