The 4Cs exists to bring hope and practical help to those going through a crisis. We currently help up to 1,000 families a month in the Cardinia Shire and the numbers are continually growing. We have a social value of over $20 million dollars (what we contribute to the community) and yet we run on about $500,000 a year.
We are really struggling to keep going and need to raise funds quickly to continue helping families with food, bill assistance, counselling, homelessness and other support services. Cardinia has the highest rate of couch surfing, bankruptcy and domestic violence in Victoria. That's why what 4Cs does matters to so many.
We've been around over 20 years but times are getting tougher as the competition for decreased funding through grants etc. increases. There are more and more people relying on us and that's why we are reaching out for help now. We would like to still be here in 2019 to continue serving those in our community who need support.
