How’s The Good Going?

HOOD’s donation to Mission Australia are already going to good use!

Yindi’s story

Yindi* and her two-year-old son had finally found an apartment to move into, but work was scarce during the COVID19 lockdowns.

Yindi wasn’t able to afford a moving service, and restrictions meant that she would have to organise the whole move all on her own.

With a little help from HOOD, Mission Auastralia was able to pay for Yindi to hire a moving truck and a couple helpers to get her and her son settled in their new home.

Meghan’s story

Stuck in an abusive relationship, with her partner in total control of her finances, Meghan* felt completely trapped.

When she reached out to Mission Australia, they were able to help her move into a safe new accommodation of her own, and furnish the apartment with essentials like a bed, a couch and somewhere to eat.

Now that she’s been able to regain some control over her life, Meghan says she’s excited about her future.
