Our Placement and Support programs focus on providing culturally relevant care and support to Aboriginal children and young people who cannot live with their parents. Some children can be in our care for a few months; some for many years. Our programs include:

 

  • Aboriginal Therapeutic Residential Care
  • Aboriginal Kinship Care
  • Foster Care or Extended Care
  • Permanent Care
  • Leaving Care
  • Aboriginal Community Placement House
  • Koorie Cultural Support

 

Colonisation and poor government policies of the past have had an extremely negative impact on the lives of Aboriginal families.  We work closely with government to help them better understand the issues and needs of Aboriginal people and to secure funding for programs and services that meet these needs.
