Have you ever considered becoming a foster carer or are you even a little bit curious to learn more about out of home care and open adoption? If so, CatholicCare invites you to attend one of our information sessions, to be held at various locations across the Hunter Valley in the coming months.
Across Australia, there are more than 40,000 children and young people who rely upon foster carers and the foster care system to keep them safe and out of harm’s way. More than 20,000 of those at-risk youths are in New South Wales.
Member for Upper Hunter Michael Johnsen MP and Bishop Bill Wright officially opened the Muswellbrook Community Hub, encompassing a variety of community providers, in February.
In an effort to better serve residents of the Upper Hunter, CatholicCare Hunter-Manning opened a brand new office in Muswellbrook earlier this month.
As Upper Hunter farmers and their families continue to struggle with ongoing and extreme drought conditions, CatholicCare is leading the charge to support local farmers by offering them free family and relationship support services, as well as free counselling services.
