Provide essential food and bedding to Aboriginal families in need this winter 

The rising cost in rent, food and bills is hitting everyone hard.  

But for single mums at risk of homelessness, the cost-of-living spike is terrifying. 

Talia is mum to 5-year-old Jackson, and was in this very same situation. Luckily, she was connected with VACCA and we could support her with a transition to a new house, and provided food for her first nights, beds and blankets for her and Jackson, a fridge and help with her first bills.  

This support was such a relief, and meant she could focus all her energy on supporting her little boy through this big change.  

Many Aboriginal mums like Talia will be facing similar challenges this winter – which is why your support is so vital.  

Please donate today to provide food hampers, bedding and access to transportation for single mums starting again from scratch.

These supports are distributed through VACCA’s Emergency Relief programs, but our regional emergency relief programs don’t receive any government funding at all. 

This means they are completely reliant on funding from kind people like you.  

And we’ve heard from our Team Leaders in Wangaratta that the demand for Emergency Relief from community keeps growing - and is expected to grow by another 50%.  

We need your support to keep this vital program running.  

If you can, please donate today – and show vulnerable Aboriginal families that their issues matter and they are not alone this winter.
