Funding fresh air for Small Steps
Thanks to generous prize donors over the last two years, WITH Tas has raised funds to support the Small Steps live-in parenting program run by the Hobart City Mission for young mums and their babies from across Tasmania.
Small Steps gives these young women life-changing support on many levels to help them through often deeply challenging and complicated circumstances. Our aim is to offer practical support so they can focus on their children and new goals in life.
In the past we've purchased specific items – hardy washing machines and commercial dryers. All much appreciated by the young mums, helping make one aspect of their daily lives less onerous.
Bugs out, air and toddlers in!
The twelve live-in units at Small Steps don't have screen doors so we want to get the fresh air in, keep the toddlers in and the bugs out! We aim to purchase twelve screen doors for the remainder of summer - can you help?
A BIG thank you to the generous donors of these wonderful prizes.
