SHELTER ESTABLISHMENT

Existing services can’t meet the demand for accommodation for women who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.

Women’s Community Shelters (WCS) works with communities to provide short term (up to 3 months) emergency accommodation and support in a safe, comfortable and secure environment that enables homeless women to rebuild self- esteem and achieve control and fulfilment in their lives. Additional women’s shelters will play a key role in alleviating the compounding impacts of homelessness, where women’s immediate needs become complex needs and the homelessness cycle hard to escape from.

If you are interested in community partnership opportunities with Women’s Community Shelters, please email: partnerships@womenscommunityshelters.org.au

WCS CONTINUES TO:

  • Identify areas where there is an unmet need for emergency / crisis accommodation
  • Proactively work with local community organisations / agencies / individuals in those areas to help set up community shelters
  • Provide ongoing governance, mentoring, fundraising and quality assurance support to assist in the ongoing operation of those shelters
  • Engage with government, non-government organisations / agencies, business and the philanthropic sector to promote awareness of, and collaborative action on, women’s homelessness.
