The foundation was founded in 2018 and since then has donated over 10,000 clothing packs through healthcare partners across Australia and New Zealand.
Jo said the Betty Cares clothing packs are designed to make a difference to women in immediate crisis.
“Providing comfort and dignity in a moment of crisis is imperative and something a social worker would advocate for,” Jo said.
“The women receiving the clothing packs may be victims of trauma, including sexual assault and intimate partner violence.
“We see women who are in an acute mental health crisis, and women who are homeless.
“We play a role in promoting the principles for integrated trauma-informed care and providing something as simple as clothing promotes their experience of feeling respected.”
