Lily has a safe place to call home

When Amy’s partner became violent, she knew she had to escape for the sake of her three children - Lily, 9, Aiden, 7, and Emma, 3.

But with no job or family to turn to, it was a terrifying step.

She fled with her kids to a cramped one-bedroom flat. But when that was sold, Amy and her young family had to sleep in the car. They were eating packet food and washing in the toilet block at the park. It was horrible.

Amy felt trapped and utterly hopeless. With barely enough money for food, she didn’t know how she’d ever give her children a proper home or the future they deserved.

A friend put Amy in touch with a Mission Australia case worker. She couldn’t believe it when we found a home for her and the kids, as well as the support they needed to get back on their feet.

Thanks to generous people like you, Amy and her family have their precious independence back.

Sadly, thousands of Australian families and children have lost their homes because of domestic violence or another crisis. They’re frightened, desperate and sleeping wherever they can - often in places that are unsafe or unliveable.
