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.
Give the gift of ongoing security and recovery
Eve’s childhood up to the age of six was not what any child should have to endure. She woke screaming and wet as she relived the traumas of her early years, where violence and neglect were commonplace. Her frail body showed the ravages of a life where safety didn’t exist, and meals and hygiene were secondary, if thought of at all.
Eve’s foster family has given her security, love and all the support and encouragement they can. Thanks to Berry Street monthly supporters, Eve and countless children like her can look forward to being a child, having fun and feeling safe.
