PLEASE DONATE TO OUR PROGRAMS
Our why = To give local residents, who are experiencing personal crisis, the options and resources they need to receive support.
To give that mum with her 6-year-old daughter a place to sleep tonight, and not be on the streets.
To give the wife that is in a violent relationship a place to seek support when she doesn’t know where to go.
To give that 24-year-old guy who hasn’t eaten for 2 days, food and further support.
You can help families facing difficult circumstances get the essentials they need for their children to reach their full potential.
The start of the year is an expensive time for most parents — there are new school shoes to buy, stationery list items to tick off, and uniforms to replace with the next size up. To this we must add school fees, electronic devices, camps, and excursions. In some cases, the term fees for a family adds up to roughly $2,800 a year.
Due to current economic circumstances, many families are not able to meet the full cost of school.
Through KidsAssist we support eligible families with school related expenses. Your contribution enables us to provide support to struggling local families.
