Women’s Community Shelters
Existing services cannot meet the demand for crisis accommodation for women who are homeless. More than one in two women across Australia who seek a bed in a crisis shelter are turned away every night, mostly due to a lack of space. And these are just the ones who find out they can ask for a safe place to go. At a time of reduced government spending, Women’s Community Shelters offers a new and ground-breaking ‘tri-partite’ funding model in which Government, philanthropy/business and community all work to provide funding to establish and operate shelters. Women’s Community Shelters works with communities to establish new shelters, which provide short term emergency accommodatio that enables homeless women to rebuild self-esteem and achieve control and fulfilment of their lives. Their shelters work because of the incredible generosity of volunteers, get in touch today! Women’s Community Shelters also welcomes corporate partnerships and workplace giving, please get in touch if your business is interested in supporting this important cause.
