This year, roughly 300 young women aged 16-24 in Metro Sydney will be at risk of having their recently born or soon-to-be born child removed from their care.
A donation to our 2022 HOPE Appeal will ensure more young families, like Tegan and Zailee (pictured above), can have access to vital services and housing support to help them stay together and thrive.
“I'm writing this because I want to help other mums like me.
“I've been through tough times, but I'm proud of the new life I've made for myself and my baby girl, Zailee.
“I couldn't have done it without help from the HOPE program and I want to make sure other young women can access the same support by sharing my story."
The HOPE program works to prevent the need for a Child Protection Response by addressing the underlying causes in vulnerable young families.
With your help, HOPE can expand its services to help more young vulnerable families to stay together in our community.
Our immediate aim is to support 90 new families.
