‘Fresh Hope' is a non-profit community based organisation with a family-orientated rehabilitation program designed for mothers and their children who have become dependent on the use of drugs and alcohol as a coping mechanism in response to crises in their lives.
Fresh Hope is a Therapeutic Community
As a residential rehabilitation home and the only home in Queensland that allows mothers to keep their children with them while accessing rehabilitation, Fresh Hope provides a safe haven for mothers and their children as well as strengthening the family bond.
Presently in Queensland, if a mother has a substance abuse problem she must either hand her children over to her to her family or the give them up to the Department of Child Safety when she enters a residential centre. Fresh Hope holds the view that giving the children to others not only adds to a mother's struggle to be rehabilitated, but also causes unnecessary trauma for the child. Kept together, there are benefits for both mother and child, enabling both parties to form attachments that have often never been known previously.
Fresh Hope works with both the mothers and their children in the areas of counselling, attachments and life skills.
Fresh Hope is breaking the Generational Cycle by empowering mothers to develop a drug free, healthy lifestyle, enabling them to parent more effectively thereby providing ‘Fresh Hope' to a generation who through drug or alcohol abuse, had lost hope.
Everyone here at Fresh Hope would like to say, thank you for helping to break the Generational Cycle!!!
