Supporting Parents – Developing Children

This partnership approach to strengthening social cohesion in Hume City focuses on literacy, language and learning. The project is designed for preschool-aged children and parents from non-English speaking backgrounds. The project has resulted in a significant positive impact within the Hume community. Parents who participated in the program have said, “This is a good place to raise a family."
