Programs collaborate to change life

A young mum engaged with the Centacare Cradle to Kinder (C2K) program was experiencing family violence and needed to flee her family. She was able to secure a place in a women’s refuge for six weeks and after that would have found herself homeless.

With the support of her C2K Case Manager an approach to Centacare Housing Services was made and due to the client’s situation Centacare Housing were able to prioritise her housing application.

A week later a suitable vacant property became available and an offer of housing was made.

“Centacare Housing staff made the process so easy and accommodating, my client felt supported to complete her housing application and move into the property. Without this assistance my client’s situation could have escalated” said C2K Case Manager.

 

Now with safe and stable accommodation this young woman and her baby have a positive outlook on the future.
