At Birch Foundation, we are committed to providing assistance to individuals and families facing financial difficulties or crises. To ensure that our support reaches those who need it most, we have established the following eligibility criteria:
Assistance from Birch Foundation is available to individuals and families residing on the Gold Coast or within our designated service areas.
Assistance is provided to individuals and families facing genuine crises, including but not limited to domestic violence, financial hardship, homelessness, or situations leaving individuals with limited resources.
Applicants are required to provide appropriate identification and documentation to verify their situation and need for assistance. This may include proof of address, identification documents, and any relevant legal documentation (e.g., domestic violence orders).
Each request for assistance is assessed on a case-by-case basis by our dedicated team to ensure that support is directed where it is most needed.
We may collaborate with local agencies, shelters, and support organizations to verify eligibility and ensure that assistance is provided to those who meet the criteria.
Individuals may be referred to Birch Foundation's Food Bank and Basic Necessities program by partner organizations, community agencies, or support workers.
Please note that these eligibility criteria are in place to ensure that our resources are directed toward individuals and families facing genuine hardships. We are committed to providing compassionate assistance and support to those in need.
