We assist families with children aged up to 18 years (including those with unborn children) living in the local government areas of:
- Moonee Valley
- Hobsons Bay
With a focus on building strong, flourishing families, our goal is to give parents the skills and confidence they need to raise healthy, happy children in a loving home environment.
Our support is:
- practical (parenting education/skills development and household management strategies)
- emotionally supportive (building on and developing existing relationships and strengths)
- culturally sensitive (connecting families with cultural groups and services in their communities)
- community focused (facilitating access to other community support services, if needed).
