From our people
“Vanguard has really helped me a lot. It has given me confidence – when you are unemployed it is hard to have a goal and things to look forward to each and every day but coming here was something that I looked forward to.” – Jason
“When I arrived, life in Australia was really hard. It was really hard because I don’t know the place, the language and what to do, even how to catch a bus. Before I couldn’t pay my bills, but now I can pay my bills. I can do things for my kids. It’s really great for me.” – Natsenet
