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. Melissa Fowler
