Project Booyah provides support to at risk youth who are involved with anti-social behaviour, substance abuse or disengagement from school. They work toward giving them life skills and employability through mentoring, leadership, adventure-based learning. Black Dog Ball funding will assist delivery of the RESPECT program in and out of schools in CQ.
CQ Healthy Families provide Support and raise Awareness of Domestic and Family Violence (DFV) in our communities. Our goal is to create a culture shift in society attitudes where DFV is no longer accepted, where there is a zero tolerance in our relationships, our families, our homes. We provide training, information and resources to business, other not for profit and private entities to build community capacity in the fight against DFV. Additionally, we host a number of social media sites that are constantly updated to provide the community instant access to DFV information and resources. The funding from the Black Dog Ball will allow us to provide additional mental health support for those effected by DFV.
