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.”

Today, as part of #NationalReconciliationWeek, we had the opportunity to hear from a highly esteemed panel of experts at University of Technology; including community leaders such as Dr. Summer May Finlay and Professor Lindon Coombes as they explored the differences between a tokenist, ally and accomplice. One of the key takeaways for us was the acknowledgment around the many things we need to think about when it comes to meaningful engagement and reconciliation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

We are committed to truth telling and being guided by Aboriginal voices on the matters that affect them.
