When you’re fifteen years old, the most you usually have to prepare for is your next maths test.
Yet although Brittney* was a keen maths student, at just fifteen she found herself preparing for motherhood… alone.
When she arrived to live at Hobart City Mission’s Small Steps program, Brittney immediately found an easy companionship with the other young mums and caring and respectful support from the Small Steps staff and volunteers.
“Being here is really good for me,” Brittney agrees, “I know little Alexa* and I are better living away from my Mum, I know we’re secure and safe here.”
Small Steps receives no ongoing Government funding and relies entirely on the support of people just like you to make sure mums like Brittney are able to provide the best care they can for their kids.
We urgently need your support to provide assistance to some of the most vulnerable in the Southern Tasmanian community.
