Help us make a difference

Each year Zig Zag faces ever increasing demands for our services and even though we receive funding from the Department of Child Safety, Youth and Women and the Department of Housing and Public Works, we struggle in an environment of increased need with depleting resources. Please dig deep and generously to assist Zig Zag’s committed workers in their continued support of young women at risk in our community.
