HELP YELTUOR SUPPORT TASMANIA’S YOUNG MUMS THIS MOTHER’S DAY

Beginning in store on Tuesday the 19th of April until Sunday the 1st of May, Yeltuor will be doing a drive for Young Tasmanian Mums in the North and South who are using services at Karinya Young Mums ‘n’ Bubs and Hobart City Mission’s Small Steps.

What do these services do?

Karinya Young Mums ‘n’ Bubs

  • Karinya Young Mums is an outreach program provided in the Launceston community for women aged 15-19 provided by Karinya Young Women’s Service
  • The Program aims to establish a safe, stable environment for young pregnant women and young mums with children
  • The Program is unique in northern Tasmania in that it provides accommodation and case management and works with young parents on developing independent living skills and connecting young parents and children to their communities

Hobart City Mission’s Small Steps

  • Small Steps is a live-in life skills and parenting program for mums aged 15-25 and their bubs who are facing homelessness in Hobart
  • They have 12 units where mums can stay for up to 2 years while she works on her goals and eventually moves on to safe, permanent, independent housing with her child
  • Helps mums achieve goals they have identified such as finishing education, learning to drive, learning developmental milestones for the little ones, counselling, maintain a tenancy, cooking on a budget and so on

These services are not for profit, so their budgets do not stretch to cover little luxuries like new gifts for the home.
