Thanks to the vision and generosity of our philanthropic partners, MacKillop is changing the lives of some of our most disadvantaged children, young people and families.
MacKillop Family Services has a long and proud history of empowering some of our most vulnerable community members. Our strategic goals put families at the heart of our vision, and we are passionate about working with communities so children can thrive.
But we couldn’t achieve this without the generous support of our philanthropic partners. Strong partnerships underpin our work. We believe that through collaboration we can create the greatest change.
Thanks to their vision and belief in what we do, our philanthropic partners have supported us to:
- Develop innovative educational programs that keep children and young people engaged in learning
- Establish Warnambool’s first Equine-Assisted Social and Emotional Learning Centre where interacting with horses has shown to have remarkable results in giving young people the skills they need to live independently and to be more connected to their communities
- Tackle some of the most confronting issues facing children and young people living in out-of-home care
- Acknowledge the importance of cultural healing and awareness in working with Aboriginal families and children.
We are always keen to work with philanthropic funders who share our vision for innovative, effective programs and services delivered to those who need them most.
