Cara is a non-profit community service organisation that has been caring for vulnerable young women since 1979.

 

Cara provides residential care, for vulnerable young women to include pregnant or parenting young women and their babies who are involved in the child protection system.

 

At Cara we assist young people by providing support, nurturing and empowerment through :

  • residential care houses
  • specialist live in young mums program
  • lead tenant program/ 18+ young mums program
  • intensive outreach support
  • and mentoring through our friendship program.

 

Cara operates under a 24 hour model of care where the staff team work together to provide assistance and support to include:

  • Assistance with educational requirements
  • Ensuring safety, good health and wellbeing
  • Reconnecting the young person with their family wherever possible
  • Developing independent living skills and connection with their community

 

Cara also provides a range of innovative and exciting program opportunities for young people including:

  • Feeling Herd’  an equine facilitated therapeutic learning experience
