Kathrine came into the Nest over 18 months ago with her daughter and has since given birth to a second daughter. With limited family support she has been living in accommodation services since the death of her mother when she was a teenager.
Adamant that she didn't want the same for her daughters Katherine came to the Nest for refuge. Due to traumatic experiences of her own Katherine had severe anxiety and fear regarding the care of her daughters; not trusting anyone. Over time and with support Katherine was able to enroll her daughters in daycare where they are both thriving and developing well in a supportive environment with Katherine's eldest daughter overcoming a speech delay.
Most recently, Kathrine identified that she wanted to go to University and study to become a paramedic. With our help we managed to secure a contribution exempt place for a UniPrep course which will allow her to pursue her studies. Having made great progress in the Nest, Katherine is currently in the process of searching for her own private rental property.
