Cafs Thread Together Program has received a very welcome Easter delivery this week in the form of a fully operational Mobile Wardrobe which will allow the delivery of brand-new clothing to reach even more people experiencing hardship across the Central Highlands region.
“The Thread Together Mobile Wardrobe is on loan to Cafs for the next 6 months giving our team a valuable opportunity to meet people where and when they need help the most”, said Cafs CEO, Wendy Sturgess. “We have a schedule of regional visits planned already to Ararat, Bacchus Marsh and Daylesford in addition to local pop-up opportunities around Ballarat.”
“Cafs does not receive any ongoing funding for the Thread Together Program so whilst we are very excited to have the opportunity to test demand for the Mobile Wardrobe the reality is that we would be looking for a generous benefactor to come forward and assist us to underwrite the operational costs associated with the extended service.”
Operating in Ballarat since 2021, Cafs Thread Together Program is stocked with brand new clothing and is open, via referral, to anyone in the community who is experiencing hardship including people experiencing homelessness, women and children escaping family violence, long-term unemployed, refugees, individuals facing severe illness, children or young people in care and young adults preparing to leave care.Skip to content
