Operating hours

Monday – Friday 8.30am - 5pm
We provide social work support for families with children between 0 and 17 years, who come under stress for all sorts of reasons. It may be on account of relationship breakdown, parenting or behavioural problems, poverty, alcohol and drug addiction, or abuse and mental illness.
OHF responds to these situations and helps empower families to overcome their difficulties and bring love and security into the lives of their children. OHF has a pool of Foster Parents who provide respite, short term and long term foster care.
We also present an ADHD Information and Support Group every term which consists of six sessions.
We also provide the Fresh Perspectives adult mentoring support service, which is an early intervention service designed to support parents through challenges. It is provided by volunteers, and it is not social work or counselling.
All services are free of charge.
