Our Programs

TWe offer short term crisis intervention support including advocacy and practical assistance, with a focus on homelessness and domestic and family violence. The support is practical with a focus on rapidly re housing or stabilising housing and crisis assistance for women escaping domestic violence. We are open each work day 9am-2pm and no appointment is necessary..

Our locations

We provide a range of support services in Cairns and Atherton that work with and assist
women, and their children, to transition them away from homelessness and violence and
the child safety system. We work alongside clients providing them with information,
resources and support to assist them to make their own decisions and life choices.

“It was nice at the shelter, I was worried I’d have to share a room with someone, I didn’t know what a shelter would be like, but I had my own unit and I felt safe as soon as I arrived. My support worker was very helpful and provided me with practical support to move forward. Today, my children and I have our own home. I don’t know if we could have done it without her.”
