The Halo Ball began in 2016 as BaptistCare’s first fundraising event for women and children affected by domestic and family violence.
Through the generosity of our supporters and guests, over the past three years we have raised a cumulative total of over $300,000.
These vital funds have gone directly to our frontline services, providing a mix of emotional and practical assistance including supported accommodation for almost 300 women and their children; group support
programs for over 350 women; as well as many hundreds of hours of individual and group counselling for women and children seeking to rebuild their lives.
Now in its fourth year, we are pleased to announce our ‘new look’ Halo Ball in support of BaptistCare HopeStreet. This new direction highlights the important role that BaptistCare HopeStreet plays in providing front line support services for families impacted by domestic violence.
We believe that lives can be transformed and that deep change is possible for our nation, and vital for the future of our communities and our families. All of us can play a part.
In 2019, we will continue to raise vital funds in support of these essential services, while building awareness around this crucially important issue.
We know the Australian domestic violence statistics are beyond alarming. Yet these numbers only just touch the surface of the deep suffering that women and children experience.
With a proven track record in supporting women and children who are fleeing violence, our BaptistCare HopeStreet teams are there, working alongside them, offering individual programs to meet their needs.
With your partnership and support, you can help us continue the vital services we have been delivering for over 33 years.
Please join us at Halo Ball 2019. Together we can help break the cycle of abuse and respond to Australia’s domestic and family violence crisis.
