The New Direction

The name change from Wee Care Family Inc. to Althea Projects Inc. brings together 40 years of grass-roots support to families and children in the Townsville community and sets our service up for an exciting future.

Althea Projects is humbled and proud to be continuing to support children and young people to reach their full potential through our existing programs but also in new and innovative ways. This new direction will allow our organisation to better respond to the needs of Townsville families; partner with a range of government, private and philanthropic investors in a way that builds on our greatest assets - our people.
