Family Support

A range of support services are available that reflect Nazareth's commitment to nourish family life. 

Family Support Workers are available for families within our community experiencing significant challenges impacting on family wellbeing. Families may be referred by Community staff, or alternatively can refer themselves. 

The Nazareth Connects program is run by a compassionate caring group of volunteers offering practical support through preparing meals, providing transport or other short term help for families following the death of a loved one or just 'running on empty'. 

Practical Support for families with refugee experience and newly arrived in Australia is offered by our Pastoral Coordinator.
