Maddie’s story

Maddie’s story

Your support this Christmas will change lives

When we first met Maddie, she was emotionally traumatised and frightened. She was a single mum and arrived in Bendigo with her little boy, Christopher. Maddie was terrified her violent former partner would track her down. Our local outreach worker, Janet, spent hours with Maddie, listening to her concerns. She played games with young Christopher, and she showed them both she really cared. Janet is part of our Home-Start Program. She did everything she could to give Maddie confidence about being a mum.

“Without Janet’s help I would still be lost, alone and afraid,” admits Maddie. “Janet has been my lifeline. Without her support, I truly don’t know where I might have ended up.”

The way we helped Maddie is a classic example of how our Home-Start team members reach out to long suffering people who are distressed. But Maddie is just one person. There are so many others who need us. We can only do this essential work with your help.

Please give now for the sake of another young mum like Maddie. Remember, with your donation, you can change lives
