DAVP providing relief

The Direct Assistance Voucher Program (DAVP) supports an annual ‘no cost’ emergency relief program for socially and financially disadvantaged people experiencing immediate financial crisis in the Geelong region, supplying them with food, material aid and pharmaceutical emergency vouchers.

The Direct Assistance Voucher Program is a partnership project with Perpetual- Percy Baxter Trust and is administered by Give Where You Live in conjunction with a network of local community service agencies working with some of the most disadvantaged in our region.DSC_0122

In 2013 Give Where You Live contributed $110,000 to the program as part of the Give Where You Live Survive & Thrive program.
