Mungabareena’s Family Service program offers assistance and support for Aboriginal children, young people, and their families to promote healing, support & advocacy. We employ a holistic approach to ensure the cultural needs of our families are met too.
Family Services provide Culturally safe support & assistance to Aboriginal families with children and young people from pre-birth up to and including 17 years of age, who reside in the local Ovens & Murray region.
As the local Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisation for the Ovens & Murray region, we at Mungabareena understand the needs of the community as we are accountable to community. We work in partnerships with families that are referred for Family Services support. Family Service staff work with family members to improve outcomes, safety and development of children, young people, and their families. Our Family Services Practitioners work alongside families toward identified goals that will support them to thrive in the future.
