Helping Out Families

What is Helping Out Families?

Helping Out Families (HOF) is a free service that supports families when they need it most.
All families go through times of stress and may need a little extra help to work through challenges.

We can help with:

  • parenting
  •  household management
  •  kids’ behaviour and school problems
  •  relationship difficulties
  •  stress management
  • feelings of isolation or loneliness
  • financial or employment struggles
  • overuse of alcohol and drugs.

HOF is a voluntary program. It is your choice to work with us. The benefits you may get from our program include support to build on the strengths of your family.

How does HOF work?

All families are different. The HOF team will work with your family to find out your goals and how we can help you meet them.

We will meet with you where you feel most comfortable, usually in your home but sometimes at our office or another suitable place at a time that suits you. We typically work with you and your family for around six months.

What you can expect from us?

We work to:

  • keep children safe by providing information, support and counselling to help parents care for their children
  • help families develop new ways to cope in times of stress
  • support and counsel children and young people who have experienced trauma.
