Housing.
Support.

Recovery.

No one is immune to a change in circumstances that can leave accommodation unaffordable, unsuitable or unstable. 

We help women prevent or resolve homelessness through tailored support, and access to safe and affordable accommodation.

What is homelessness?

Homelessness is a lack of one or more of the elements that represent ‘home’—including a sense of security, stability, privacy, safety, and the ability to control living space. It can look like: couch surfing, living in a car, pet-sitting, house-sitting or over-staying with friends and family. In fact, only 6% of people experiencing homelessness in Australia are sleeping on the streets.

Older women—those aged 55 and over— are the fastest growing cohort of homeless Australians.

What is mental ill-health?

Mental ill-health is an issue that affects all of us at some point in our lives. Nearly half of all Australians will experience a mental illness in their lifetime. So, ‘mental ill-health’ is an umbrella term that includes many different types of experiences that range from mild to severe in their effect on us.

It can be brought on by financial issues, relationship strain, problems at work, or other life challenges. Experiences that are highly stressful or traumatic can also have a big impact on our mental health.

Signs that you may be experiencing mental ill-health include changes in your eating or sleeping pattern, feeling overwhelmed, feeling more emotional than usual, having difficulty thinking clearly or making decisions, or noticing that you are not coping like you were before.

Our impact

“Upon my hospital discharge I was destitute and hopeless.

I had no one to turn to when you gently and lovingly guided me towards stable housing, much needed clinical support and reassurance that I’m not alone and voiceless.”

We support a change to the Constitution, in line with the Uluru Statement from the Heart, to give Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples recognition, representation and a say about the policies that affect them. The Voice to Parliament is a step towards improving quality of life for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people by fostering more effective, informed, and just policies.

As a women’s homelessness service, our mission is to improve housing and health outcomes and we are especially hopeful about the Voice’s potential for closing the gap for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women experiencing homelessness on the lands on which we live and work.

We encourage you to learn more:

When a woman reaches out to us, their first - and ongoing - point of contact is with one of our qualified case managers. They do everything from arranging meetings, liaising with the womans support networks (with consent!), getting them support and settling them into their new homes.

Tailored support my arse. If your support is so tailored why did you force me out of work & fight with me every single visit? Why did you destroy the fuck out of my life & career? Why did you destroy me?

Can you imagine facing homelessness, asking for help, and then being turned away?

In 2020-21, this happened to 114,000 people due to a lack of resources. Women experiencing homelessness are particularly vulnerable and face unique challenges.
