Reflecting on the Journey: RISE to Rebuild Program

As we look back on the completion of the RISE to Rebuild program, we can't help but feel an overwhelming sense of pride and accomplishment. What started as a pilot program designed to support mothers rebuilding their lives after domestic abuse has blossomed into a transformative journey of healing, growth, and empowerment.


A Journey of Healing and Growth

Over the six months of the Rise to Rebuild program, our dedicated group of participants has shown immense courage and resilience as they navigated the challenges of healing from past trauma while nurturing themselves and their children. Through a series of 10 content sessions and 10 support group meetings, we explored various aspects of post-traumatic growth and therapeutic parenting skills, providing a safe and supportive space for sharing, learning, and healing.


Empowering Mothers, Transforming Lives

One of the most rewarding aspects of the program has been witnessing the transformation in our participants. From learning new coping skills to embracing self-compassion and mindfulness, each woman has emerged from the program stronger, more empowered, and better equipped to navigate life's challenges. By breaking generational cycles of abuse and modelling healthy behaviours for their children, these mothers are not only rebuilding their own lives but also laying the foundation for a brighter future for their families. The ripple effect created by this program is beyond measure.


Celebrating Success

As we celebrate the completion of the RISE to Rebuild program, we are thrilled to share some of our key achievements:


  • High Attendance Rate: Despite the inevitable obstacles and commitments of daily life, our participants showed remarkable dedication, with an impressive attendance rate of 87.7% throughout the program.

  • Positive Feedback: The feedback we received from participants has been overwhelmingly positive, with many expressing gratitude for the support, guidance, and sense of community they found within the program.

  • Personal Growth: Participants reported significant growth in their confidence, self-esteem, and ability to cope with stress, as well as improvements in their relationships with their children and other family members.

  • Participants formed connections & friendships & continue to support each other outside & beyond the program.


 Looking to the Future

 While the RISE to Rebuild program may have come to an end, the journey of healing and growth continues for our participants. Armed with newfound skills, resilience, and a supportive community, these women are ready to face whatever challenges lie ahead with strength and determination.


As we bid farewell to this chapter, we are filled with gratitude for the opportunity to have been part of such a transformative experience. We extend our heartfelt thanks to all who supported and contributed to the success of the program, including Broken to Brilliant, Logan City Council, and the Beenleigh Neighbourhood Centre.
