Wodonga resident Mikaela Reid was just eight years old when she became a
carer. Her father has a mental illness and two brothers and sister live
with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and anxiety.
Mikaela was supported by our member organisation Villa Maria Catholic Homes
for more than five years. Now aged 20, she’s giving back to the program
that helped her though the toughest time of her life by volunteering as
a mentor in its Young Carer Mentor Program (YCMP).
Villa Maria Catholic Homes are in need of more volunteer mentors in
Wodonga, Wangaratta, Shepparton, Benalla and surrounds. If you can help,
call Marion Rak on (03) 5722 9046.
