Children,
Youth & Family

Every child should have a happy, safe and rewarding life.

Our programs help improve the life outcomes of children and young people, many of whom, as a result of experiencing neglect or abuse, can no longer live at home.
Foster care

Foster care provides a safe and supportive home and family life for children and young people who are unable to live with their parents. We support foster care families across the southern and eastern regions of Melbourne. And we’re always looking for new carers to make a difference to a child in need.
