Anne's story

Anne faced enormous challenges. She lived through an abusive relationship, was isolated, and dealt with depression and anxiety for many years. After fleeing with her two young children, Anne was homeless for 18 months. She and her children spent time in temporary refuges and crisis accommodation. Anne was soon referred to our financial capability program, Firmer Foundations™. She reported that through Firmer Foundations™ she felt more confident and learnt new skills in managing her money. Anne describes Firmer Foundations™ as a place where she felt safe and understood; where she could connect with other people, be accepted, and create a manageable plan for the future that included increasing financial stability for her and her children. With your support, we can help more women like Anne. Thank you for your consideration.
