We invest heavily in supporting the development of holistic solutions and delivering a reliable service through a culturally sensitive lens to those of our mob who need them most.

Breaking the Cycle
With this initiative, our goal is to promote great opportunities for our families in need. The Family Preservation team provides a professional, culturally appropriate, child centred, family focused, trauma informed and strengths-based program. The Family Preservation’s tailored support services aim to build strong, well-functioning families where children can live safe from abuse and neglect and have improved well-being, physical, social, emotional and educational outcomes. Tailored services include: case management, in-home support and casework focused on parent vulnerabilities, structured home visiting, parenting programs and brokerage funding. We accept placement referrals from NSW Department of Communities and Justice.
With access to the right resources and supports, we believe our families can become empowered by their own abilities and gain the confidence to fulfil their potential. Learn more about our work by getting in touch with our team today.
ABORIGINAL AND TORRES STRAIT ISLANDER FOSTER CARE
Doing What’s Needed
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and young people in NSW make up anywhere between 30-80% of the children in care across the different regions. They are over represented and more often than not are not being supported by a culturally appropriate organisation. Our vision is to provide culturally and spiritually stable homes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and young people. Our commitment is to place our children and young people in care situations that are appropriately matched to support their individual identity and self-esteem. These placements must also meet their social, emotional and behavioural needs. We aim to do this by providing the highest standard of family-based care, best practice casework and specialist support services to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and young persons and their carers, and in doing so, achieve the best outcomes for those children, young people and their families.
We accept placement referrals from NSW Department of Communities and Justice as well as other Funded Service Providers.
