Homeless family left Torres Strait Islands for better education and employment opportunity needs support
This loving family left TSI for educational and employment opportunities, rather than send their kids to boarding school (only high school option in TSI). They were homeless here and self-funding in motels, paying exorbitant rates. They are now in a private rental but tryin to furnish this place while also outlaying educational costs for two children. They are working casually but have no guaranteed hours and are currently searching for more permanent work. This family is one of the most gracious that I have ever worked with. they are trying to be self-reliance but desperation has forced them to reach out to the community. They express their gratitude for anyone willing to help and promise to pay it forward when they are in a better position.
