Family Foundations Service

UnitingCare West’s Family Foundations program provides support to families with children who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. The program supports families through providing  meals, material assistance, psychological and emotional support, referral, education assistance, advice and information.

The program has four key aims:

  • Provide a safe, structured and supportive environment for families with children;
  • Support educational opportunities for children to ensure they remain connected to the education system;
  • Assist in meeting the immediate material needs of families with children; and
  • Offer information, advice and referral to assist families with children to address their homelessness and related issues.

Families can attend the centre without any referral. The centre operates between 4pm and 8pm weekdays providing the opportunity for families to be safe and supported during the late afternoon and early evening. Family Foundations staff work to connect families to the range of other UnitingCare West programs to ensure that support in other areas is provided.

Family Foundations receives no government funding.
