She and the kids were relieved when he left. Then a new wave of abuse started.

Joanne had experienced abuse from her ex-partner for a long while. When the police imposed an AVO (Apprehended Violence Order) on him, he moved out of the family home. The day he left, he cleared out the bank account, froze the credit card and paused the home loan. He was determined to make Joanne and the children hungry and homeless.

Joanne survived for a while but when her children started to go to bed hungry she knew she need help to survive. Thankfully she reached out to Vinnies.

We were able to give Joanne a hand up. It started with boxes of fresh fruit and vegetables, food vouchers, and paying household bills. Then we were able to cover expensive sessions ordered by the courts as part of her legal battle to keep.

There are more people who have escaped domestic abuse struggling to survive. Will you help them?
