We are working community by community to establish an Australia where women and their children are safe, secure, supported & equal.

Women’s Community Shelters works with local communities to establish new safe crisis accommodation options for women and children. 

Get Involved

We have a million ways to engage with your community to raise awareness of the issues surrounding female homelessness and to raise funds for shelters.

WCS relies on your vital donations to continue our important work.  We receive only a portion of our shelters’ operating costs from the NSW state government.
