This organisation offers a range of important services for the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community in Brisbane. This includes educational programs for children and families, youth engagement, domestic and family violence support, family wellbeing services, community access, men's and women's groups, employment readiness and much more. Their vision is "to be a deadly organisation that supports our mob on their journey."

Each January, this organisation holds a Back to School Day with free activities, haircuts, a sausage sizzle and a giveaway of school supplies. The purpose of the day is to get kids in the community excited about heading back to school. Your donation will help make this day a success, and ensure First Nations kids have what they need for school in 2022.
