House of Hope

Published on June 7, 2022

NewHope Community Care have partnered with BaptCare to establish a “House of Hope” to provide support, safety and opportunities for Asylum Seekers.

This year, an Asylum Seeker family have moved into our newly purchased property in Dale Crt near NewHope. Ruth Buckmaster is the Baptcare caseworker working with NHCC and says,

“The family that have moved into the Dale Crt house are independent in many ways. I do remote case work and I’ve had a bit of back and forth with Hannah from NHCC. It’s wonderful to have a great team at NHCC and a community that are willing to respond to the needs of the family. I’m excited to see how NewHope is responding in a real way to the practical needs of people and providing connection. Connection is one of the fundamental pillars of recovery to any life crisis.”
