We need your support to help vulnerable families like Cassie's.
Life as a single mum hasn't been easy for Cassie*.
Being a full-time carer for three young children, Cassie is unable to work to keep food on the table. And she's not the only one struggling.
Today, your compassionate gift means families like Cassie's get every opportunity to succeed. Because it takes a village to raise a child.
“At the start I wasn't actually eating a lot because I had to feed my kids, as well as pay rent, do bills... I found it really tough” - Cassie
Cassie had to rely on her own strength to get through the mental health challenges and financial struggles she was experiencing as a single mum.
You can support vulnerable families to make it through the tough times.
Help families like Cassie's
Paying the bills and putting food on the table was a struggle, until Cassie approached CatholicCare Victoria for support.
Eager to find a new lease on life, Cassie left her hometown to get away from her violent relationship. But with three children under the age of 10, Cassie put her life on hold to provide full-time care for her kids.
Cassie’s love for her children and her determination to turn her life around so they all can succeed is extraordinary.
Mothers like Cassie need your help urgently.
