We manage 4 refuges, which offer warm, safe and welcoming accommodation for women with or without children who need immediate and safe accommodation. One of these refuges is specifically for Aboriginal women and children and one is specifically for single women. Some of our accommodation is modified to accommodate women or children with disabilities.
We recognise that pets can also be at risk of harm when there is domestic violence, and therefore we have one refuge that can accommodate your pet with you, this is based on availability and assessment. We can also advocate for and support women to access alternate pet accommodation through external services. This means that women do not have to leave their pets behind when they are fleeing a violent relationship.
We partner with community housing organisations to provide transitional housing for women and children who are no longer in crisis but have ongoing support needs. We currently have 26 properties that clients can stay in for up to 12 months. During this time, we work with women to secure long-term safe housing.
