From the passing of a child, to the effects of school bullying, to the confusion of a new family arrangement - at the Benevolent Society we see unexpected pressures break apart struggling families every single day.
Many times there’s no one to blame, but Life. All these families need is dedicated support from our practitioners to get them back on track.
That’s why your help is needed today. Your kind donation means our counsellors can be there to help struggling families stay together…
…just like they were there for the Christiansons who faced a terrible crisis when the mother of the family, Jayne, suddenly died of an undiagnosed heart condition.
The fallout almost tore the family apart. The father, Matthew, suffered deep depression and lost his job. One daughter, Emma rebelled towards drugs and alcohol. Both Emma and her younger sister Ava (just nine) were at risk of being taken away.
Thanks to generous gifts like yours today - the Christiansons had help. Our practitioner worked with each family member to support them during this terribly difficult time, arranging for specialist counselling to help them come to terms with their grief.
In time, the family began to support each other again. When Matthew got his old job back the family unit began to work again.
That’s the difference your donation today can make. Please make your kind gift today to give specialist counselling to a family at risk of breaking apart.
