A shelter can provide safe emergency accommodation for women and children who are trying to escape violent or abusive situations. The location of our shelter is not advertised for obvious security reasons. Shelters exist because workers believe that women have the right to live their live free of violence and fear. Our workers assist with Centrelink, schooling, legal and housing related matters.
Other names for women’s shelters are:
- Women’s Refuge
- Safe House
