Parnpajinya Aboriginal Males Healing Service (PAMHS)
The AMHC will provide a much-needed service to some of the most vulnerable Aboriginal families in the Pilbara region. PAMHS will improve and enhance the local community’s awareness of critical local services and work in unison to activate both a safe community for women, their children and the elderly, job creation, and creating a greater sense of connectedness and ownership within the community.
Through the provision of this project, and ultimately the activation of the AMHC Residential Hub, the community of Newman and Shire of East Pilbara will benefit through the following outcomes:
- A steady reduction in the occurrences of FV
- An immediate reduction in the impact of FV abuse and AOD misuse within Parnpajinya and a steady decrease with other local Aboriginal Communities
- A steady reduction in the FV and AOD fuelled crime statistics.
- The introduction of a new micro-business hub on Parnpajinya for women and the elderly
- Employment opportunities for our male clients
- Increased interagency collaboration and communications
- Expansion of existing FV community programs and implementation of new FV programs
- Delivery of fit for purpose infrastructure for community FV and AOD service providers and community members
- Establishment of a Community Information and Referral Centre, incorporating a Volunteer Hub
- Increased Nyiyaparli and Martu male engagement in community services
Tucker Foundation funding will go towards our artwork therapy for the participants.
