Mums’ Cottage bases it’s foundations on empowering and improving the potential in the lives of families. We walk with families as they transition from challenging and difficult times to a brighter future. Mums’ Cottage offers free companionship, mentoring, counseling and education as well as being able to refer to people we trust for more specialised help such as legal and financial advice. At the Cottage we store emergency supplies donated by our generous Community. Things such as such as clothing, babies supplies and toys, are readily available and we can assist in finding emergency food and accomodation in situations such as women escaping domestic violence.
We are proud to be advocates for women and families and affirm their sacredness and respect their dignity. Each week we offer courses that assist with parenting, mindfulness, and encourage women especially to support each other by providing a safe meeting place for them. All the work we do is dependent on funds raised by either grants or fundraising ventures, and at the moment every person who helps us is a volunteer. Our future ability to continue this work in helping people when they are at their most vulnerable, and encouraging and guiding them towards a brighter future will only continue with generous donations by the wider community, and the help of organisations.
