Coast2Bay Housing Group is an independent, not for profit company committed to providing affordable and safe housing for families escaping domestic violence. The donation will go towards the RISE Project which aims to raise $90,000 in 90 days to build homes for two families on land that has already been donated.
This donation presented by our Foundation was made possible by the generous support of Network Communication, Slater and Gordon, McDonalds Australia, Go Transit and the Crick Eastham Foundation, along with many other local businesses who attended the Coast2Bay Charity Luncheon.

At Crick Auto Group we are proud of our ongoing working relationship with Urban Dog Tees and excited about our new business venture supplying branded
T-shirts and polo shirts to our new car customer base. Our Maroochydore dealerships purchase in excess of 300 T-shirts per month which are shipped on our behalf, by Urban Dog Tees, to our appreciative customers.
Urban Dog Tees [A program of Integrated Family and Youth Service Ltd] is a locally based, community organisation that supports young people who have not had the
greatest possible start in life. These young staff members may have come from an abusive or broken home, an impoverished background or been raised in numerous
foster homes. The goal of Urban Dog is to help ensure that their disadvantaged start does not make for a disadvantaged future. Through the program, young
people are taught employment and life skills, helping to address issues such as anger, addictions and mental illness, with the ultimate goal of redirecting them
away from long-term unemployment, poverty and possible criminal behaviours.
By supporting Urban Tees we continue to support a very worthwhile cause.

We genuinely believe we make a positive and visible difference through our involvement making them a wonderful business partner and worthy charity of choice.
