Be the Village

The Caroline Chisholm Village


We often hear the saying  ‘It takes a village to raise a child’.  We want to make the greatest impact in our community for those that need it the most. We want to provide them with their own village of assistance. From providing pre-natal support for mum to early pregnancy intervention and positive outcomes for the whole family. Our aim is to keep families together.

We more importantly want to provide that connection with the community in the First 1000 Days of the child’s life.


Be the Village. Here's how you can get involved

Become a Regular Giver

We rely on regular donations to help us forecast and plan ahead to reach our goals and live out our mission.

This is where the Caroline Chisholm Village plays a vital role. We want to build a village filled with regular givers that are willing to commit to our work for the future. We are want to build a village that is sustainable and supportive of our community.

If you would like to become a part of the Village, you can sign up for your monthly donation here.  We thank you for your support.


Donate Goods

Pregnant and new families we support often need need material aid. They are in need of new born items, clothes for mum and accessories for baby. Find out more about the items we accept and days we accept donations.


Donate your Time

The gift of your time is invaluable. We have groups of volunteers who form a Fundraising Working Group, run regular stalls, a knitting group, a craft and sewing group and volunteers who help sort and pack donations. We want to expand our volunteer base in Moonee Valley, Melton and Goulburn Valley region.
