Housing and Homelessness Services
We deliver a range of housing and tenancy support programs for people in our community, including specialised services for young people and Indigenous Australians.
Financial and Gambling Support
Do you need help with unresolved debt or gambling support? Our financial support team provides free financial counselling for people struggling with debt. Our dedicated Gambler’s Help service delivers free support in a caring, non-judgmental environment.
Our Family Counselling services help you foster the skills to navigate relationships within your family. Our private and confidential sessions are available to individuals, couples and families.
Family violence can happen to anyone, but it’s most commonly carried out by men against women who are their current or former partners. About a quarter of women in Australia have experienced violence by a partner at least once.
Pregnancy Options Counselling
Pregnancy Options Counselling provides unbiased, evidence-based information about your options and the services available to you without encouraging one option over another. At Cafs, we offer you the opportunity to speak to an independent professional about all the options available to you including parenting a child, adoption, and fostering & kinship care in a safe and supported environment.
New clothes can mean the world to a person in need – it can help them get a new job, keep their children warm, or refill their wardrobe after fleeing family violence with nothing. Cafs’ Thread Together clothing hub gives people in need that security by providing brand-new clothing donated by Australian retailers.
Youth are the future of our community. But sometimes young people find themselves in tough situations that are difficult to navigate. Our youth support programs help young people stay engaged in learning and connected to a network of support in the wider community.
