Cafs is calling for local people to take the first step to being a foster carer during Foster Care Week 2023, which runs from 10 – 16 Sept.
The wellbeing of children, young people and their families is at the heart of everything we do. Our care is inclusive and
collaborative, and our innovative support programs are specifically designed to meet the needs of our local community.

MAKE A DONATION
At Cafs, your contribution counts.
We’ve been supporting children and families as a proudly independent organisation for nearly 160 years and, in that time, we have expanded to deliver more than 44 innovative support programs specifically designed to meet the needs of people across the Victorian Central Highlands.
It’s hard to believe that even the smallest donation could make a significant difference to someone experiencing hardship.
Just $5 could provide a new outfit from Cafs Thread Together Hub to a person in need.
Your gift, no matter the amount, will help Cafs continue to build a stronger, more resilient community.
Donations* can be made by following the links below.
*Cafs is a registered charity and donations of $2 or more are tax deductible.
