How your donation helps

Lucas was 6 when he came to Berry Street. Lucas was a victim of family violence and was so affected by his past of abuse and trauma, he struggled in traditional foster care homes. He didn’t know how to communicate or what it felt like to live in a stable home where he was safe from violence. We placed him in a Teaching Family Model house which is a new innovative type of care. Now his Teaching Family Carers, Alice and Paul, his first positive adult role models are teaching him how to live in a family, how to communicate and how to be a child.

We are investing heavily in our regular giving program in order to support the delivery of services to ever-increasing numbers of children and young people. In 2019/20, 47% of donations received by Berry Street is distributed to beneficiaries. Every dollar we spend on our regular giving program this year will return $3 over the next five years.
