Mallee Family Care

Mallee Family Care offers services on Family services, Foster care, Legal and Financial support, Disability and Mental Health support and programs.

Based in Mildura, its programs reach New South Wales and western area of Victoria.

- Teen pregnancy is double that for Victoria;

- 1 in 3 children are not read to by their parents each day;

- 1 in 5 parents with children under 15 years are unemployed

- 1 in 10 parents have a history of mental illness;

- Family drug and alcoholproblems are doubole that for Victoria;

- Child Protection rates are 3 x the state average;

- Out of Home Care is nearly double that for Victoria.
