I CaN HOPe Program
The I CaN HOPe The I CaN HOPe Program which means Indigenous Chameleon and Ngarrama Housing Opportunities Program has been developed in partnership between Chameleon Housing and Ngarrama, a free antenatal, birthing and postnatal service for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families who choose to birth at the Redcliffe Hospital. Chameleon Housing will provide the accommodation support to families in the Ngarrama program who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. The goal of the program will be for the family to transition into long term independent accommodation through the Department of Housing or the independent market. Chameleon Housing provides the family with a fully furnished house and case management support. The Ngarrama service offers qualified Clinical Midwives, Child Health Nurses and Advanced Indigenous Health Workers (Maternal and Infant Health) for up to six weeks after birth.
GOALS - Female and Male Mentoring ProgramsGuys and Gals Offering Assistance & Lending Support – Our strengths based program is driven by the needs and interests of the mentee rather than the expectations of others.
