Why donate?

In 2019, SOAR provided free long-term open ended support to a record 112 families, improving the lives of 155 children – double the total cases we had in 2018. This helped families to become strong and resilient and cope with challenges that they faced, to secure stability and safety, to support their wellbeing, encourage self-development and prevented families from becoming homeless and destitute. We helped children access therapy and supported women with material needs for their new home. We helped mothers keep their children in school, supported women with laptops so they could study, and provided mentoring to kick-start their career or learn to budget at home. Without funding, none of this is possible.

Testimonials

“SOAR gives me unconditional love and support like a normal family should. I feel trusted, accepted and understood and this gives me mental security to be able to heal from my abusive childhood and marriage. It’s a healing and growing journey I’m embarking on and I have faith that I can do it. I am learning to be a role model for my children through being loved and accepted without judgement.”

“SOAR offers an amazing group of women who support each other like no one else can, as they understand and don’t judge as you go through the ups and downs of surviving an abusive relationship. The time spent together helps soothe the scars and give hope.”
