Local financial assistance charity, Escare is marking a major milestone. The organisation was officially incorporated 35 years ago on March 8, 1983.
With the anniversary quickly approaching, Escare's celebration will coincide with International Women’s Day. Service manager Jo Aberle said the charity has assisted families with finding affordable housing, coping with social isolation and financial stress, accessing child care and helped youth at risk.
“We are an inclusive and innovative, family friendly organisation,” she said. “Escare has a strong relationship with many Noongar families and an open door policy. We identify and respond to emergent needs and offer a range of services, which cater to members of the whole community, individuals and family events."
