Marcella was referred to Strong Families to develop her confidence, competence as a parent and manage support with gambling issues.

From the beginning Marcella was actively engaged attending the Parenting Hub for craft, case management and targeted Parenting programs.

Marcella has completed the Triple P parenting program assisting her to manage misbehaviour, set positive boundaries and expectations for her family.

In September Marcella completed the Parents under Pressure program increasing her awareness of emotional regulation, managing stress and the importance of being a positive role model for her kids.

Last year her son was rewarded for good school attendance and Marcella has secured part-time employment. Whenever Marcella faces difficulties or has good news she still drops in for support and encouragement.
