Testimonials
From One of our young mothers. “When I first came into Girls time out, I was very shy. After a few weeks I came out of my shell thanks to all the staff at Girls time out. They are very helpful and supportive, and I continue to keep in contact with them. I found the program very helpful. The program showed me new opportunities. It also opened my mind to new ways of parenting. The program also helped with my self-esteem in my everyday life. I would recommend this program to other parents. I have also told other parents about the Young Empowered parents’ program.”

Young Empowered Parents Program

A young mum came into Girls Time out after having all her children taken out of her care. She was at breaking point. Girls Time Out has helped provided the space so she could have supervised visits here at the office. Girls Time Out also helped with supports regarding donations of clothes and household items as well for her. This Mum attended groups and graduated from the triple PPP program until she was eventually given custody back to her children which took 2 years. This Mum has her children back in her care and is still attending the programs at Girls Time Out. She is doing very well.

Young Mums Support Program

A young mum has come along to our programs at Girls Time Out for the last 2 years now and has always been a very quiet achiever. She always bakes treats and brings them along to group. She has struggled with depression and anxiety however coming along to these groups has really helped her a lot as well as talking with the other mums. Her & her partner had moved out of Rockhampton a year ago. She stated she was not happy and was she was contacting Girls Time Out nearly every week to just chat and try and get accommodation back here. It worked out and they got another house here a few months ago and she has been doing well. She can now attend groups weekly at Girls Time Out and keep in contact with everyone.
