An Aboriginal Kamilaroi teenager pregnant
There were 668 teenage mothers out of 10,903 births in the New England area of NSW in 2010. There is also a gap in specialised service providers to teenage parents with an unborn child in Moree.
Anglicare in the region has discovered that teenage mothers would welcome support and guidance during this challenging, anxious and unknown period of their lives.
Hope For Life will be a specialised, early intervention service designed to assist teen mothers and their support circle to develop a healthy family environment. A significant number of Aboriginal teenagers will be clients of Hope for Life and ABM believes this innovative project that will be run by Anglicare needs to be supported in its initial three-year pilot to offer further care to Indigenous young women.
Give to this new project and join the support of over 300 people in Moree who are advocating for this service.
AU013HL – Hope for Life needs $33,000 in 2015 (non tax-deductible) – this project is currently not available.
