Individual & Family Support
Every year, refugee and migrant families come to Australia from all over the world and there can be many joys and challenges in building a life in a new country. MiCare’s Individual and Family Services support newly arrived refugees and migrants to realize their individual and family strengths, confidence, well-being, and connection with the community.
MiCare provides one-to-one support for individual and family humanitarian entrants from arrival up to 5 years.
