Lighthouse Foundation is paving a new way forward for fostering providing tailored and continuous support for foster families in Northern Melbourne to grow and thrive.
The Lighthouse Difference – we’re here to support you, so that you can support them.
Our promise is to provide Foster families with the genuine therapeutic care, sense of community and consistent circle of support they need to care for some of Victoria’s most vulnerable children.
We believe community is integral to the success of foster placements because it takes a village to raise a happy, healthy and thriving child- a village where everyone’s emotional, physical and mental health is nurtured.
Drawing on more than 60 years of empirical research and three decades of front-line experience caring for traumatised young people in our Lighthouse Homes, we’ve seen first-hand the challenges children and carers face in the existing system. When you break it down, our solution is relatively simple but we still need you to make it work.
We’re looking for Foster Families specifically located in Northern Melbourne and for full information – please visit www.lighthousefostercare.org.au.
