Who we are

The Korus Connect Story

Our story began with a vision to help create communities that are connected, supported and whole. It's a story of collaboration, connection and conversation.

Our Journey
A vision for community

The Korus Connect vision is one of supported communities with thriving people—engaged in their local area, collaborating with one another and concerned for the welfare of their neighbours. We desire to see communities that are connected, supported and whole.

‘Korus’ is a union of the Greek word kora—which means space, and ‘chorus’—which refers to the harmony and wholeness that comes from connection. ‘Korus’ speaks of a space for people to unite, join together, and be supported and inspired.

Our Philosophy

Partnering for Community

Today we see communities where loneliness, stress, dissatisfaction, and other issues are prevalent and pervasive.

But we also see the positive efforts of many providing support in different settings.

We believe that, under God, real and lasting change in communities is possible through collaboration. That's why we strive to collaborate with and foster connections between the government, churches, community organisations and public services.

We work with others to help build communities that are connected, supported and whole.
