Jacaranda Cottage is a refuge for young women aged between 16 and 24 who have become homeless or are at risk of becoming homeless. For over 20 years Jacaranda has existed to serve and support girls who have experienced family breakdown, domestic violence, poverty, abuse, or neglect. In supporting me to fundraise for Jacaranda you will be making a direct difference in the lives of young women at risk of homeless and who are experiencing homelessness.

Mel worked for Jacaranda Cottage for 16 years and has a huge passion for the life transforming work that happens at Jacaranda Cottage. Jacaranda is more than a roof over the heads of young women who are homeless, it provides a tribe, a second family to belong to. Jacaranda tribe sees young women through ups and downs and creates a safe place to dream again and discover their identity and flourish into independence. It is a really unique 12 program and so many lives have been impacted by the incredible work that happens there.

Please give generously! Matt, Mel, Jazahra and Lincoln are all participating this year! Melissa Fowler
