Gifts For Families.

For many of us, Christmas is a joyous time filled with excitement. However, due to the rising cost of living many are experiencing hardship, making this time of year a stressful one. Families will struggle to afford gifts and provide their children with the Christmas they deserve.

Your donation goes directly to Uniting Home Based Care in South-East Melbourne's Christmas Gifts For Families program.

Gifts For Families - South-East Melbourne.

Uniting’s South and East Melbourne Home Based Care Teams provide safe homes for vulnerable children and young people with support from our volunteer Foster Carers.

We have seen a significant increase in the number of children and young people entering Foster Care this year and we need your assistance to continue providing them with a warm, safe and loving environment while they are unable to live with their families.

This year our goal is to provide a present to every child and/or young person who enters our program so that no child will go without a gift this Christmas.
