Community Hub: Assist in funding an operational drop-in centre on the Gold Coast, in Queensland. It exists to provide a safe, supportive and accepting environment for vulnerable people within the wider coastal community.
Practical Resources: Provision of basic human needs such as meals, showers, connection and a caring heart, our beneficiaries are able to care for the most vulnerable in our community, with more than 10,000 people helped last year.
Helping Hands Program: Rescuing kids from sexual exploitation and helping them stay free. This initiative is all about lending a hand to families having to deal with the ‘fall out’ from child sexual abuse. A difficult situation, especially in the initial period following disclosure. Trained volunteers visit families at a time that is convenient, assessing if there are any needs that the Helping Hands Program can meet, including food parcels, lawn mowing and laundry pick-ups. Services are not means tested.
Reintegration: The next steps are to identify what made a child vulnerable to exploitation, and then help them overcome it.
