We need your support
Last year over 2,300 calls were made to our 24/7 Crisis Line, and over 2,500 bed nights were provided to women and children in need of safe housing.
With your help, we can support more women and children again this year. Together, we can help those impacted by family violence to be empowered to live happier, healthier and safer lives. Thank you.

Donations of Goods
Our clients often leave their homes in a hurry – with no time to take extra belongings. Even when they return to their communities they can need a full household of resources. You can help by donating quality used goods, household items and clothing. Because our clients’ needs change and due to limited storage space we can only accept what we require at any one time.
Here’s what we need right now:
- Food for the safe houses
- Meat for freezer
- Food for dinner meals
- Feminine products
How to donate resources
Please contact us on 03 332 4122 to donate as we don’t often have physical space to store donations, or email us.
