Every night, 56,000 women in Australia are homeless – including many with young children, and many escaping family violence. 42% of the homeless population in Australia are women.
Women’s Community Shelters provides a safe place for women to escape the situation they’re facing and the seek the support they need.
More than one in two women across Australia are turned away from a crisis shelter, mostly due to a lack of space – every night.
These women looking for help and need a place to go where they feel safe.
Finding a safe place to go is just the beginning of a long list that these women face when they’re in a situation they need to remove themselves from. Women’s Community Shelters provide the support that these women deserve access to so they may start the process of rebuilding.
