Stand Up Against Domestic Violence
God has entrusted our community with the gift of ministry to vulnerable people. We have been let into a world that involves very sensitive, private, family issues and we have been uniquely equipped to help. Even in this community there are people struggling silently and they trust us. We hear their stories.
Much of what we do is done quietly behind the scenes. However, LifeCare is at the forefront of effective ministry and transformation. We have been effective agents of transformation in the lives of some of the most vulnerable people in our community. LifeCare has built a reputation of expertise and trust in one of the biggest issues affecting our communities today…Domestic Violence.
1 in 4 Australian women have experienced physical violence at the hands of a current or former intimate partner since the age of 15!
Domestic violence is hidden behind closed doors. You can’t see it. It could be happening right next door. One of the most pernicious things about domestic violence is that the victims don’t know who to trust and they need courage to seek help. The victims often hide their pain as they feel ashamed, helpless, afraid, not knowing where to go for help.
God has given Crossway a way through those hidden doors to bring healing and hope. LifeCare has been working for years to develop a relationship of trust and we have succeeded. We have a strong reputation as a trusted group for healing and hope. The community has learned that they can trust us with their story, their pain and vulnerability.
Jesus has invited us into his work with these vulnerable families. God has entrusted us with the responsibility. We as a community need to step up and take it. We are doing what we can but we need your help. We understand that not everyone can be on the front line but everyone can do their part to help.
