Chloe's Story

The Chloe is named after a woman who in 2o17, found herself facing homelessness after feeling a violent relationship found her disconnect from her family. With the help of her local advocacy service, Chloe was able to find safe and secure housing, and was supported to reconnect with her four-year-old son, find employment, and start a Certificate 3 in Community Services to work towards her goal of working in the same sector that helped her find security and stability.

Despite how hard she's worked to turn her life around, Chloe still struggles to accept that she is worthy of compassion. This is why, when she received a bag donated in our most recent #Itsinthebag campaign, she was so shocked by the generosity of the contents of her overflowing bag. Inside the bag was a note, and the sigh of it brought tears to her eyes. She later emailed her support worker to say that it had made her feel so special to know that someone out there could be so caring and understanding of what she had been through. That thoughtfully prepared bag and lovingly written note made a real difference to Chloe. It gave her so much more than just a bunch of toiletries and sanitary items, it gave her knowledge that she is worthy of love.

Chloe has had a rough start, but she is determined to overcome her challenges and live the best life she can possibly live. We know that, with the right support, she will certainly be able to do this, and we are so proud of her for having the courage to keep going, and that's why we've decided to name the Chloe Bag after her, because Chloe is exactly why we do what we do.
