We operate a homelessness and domestic violence program in Atherton that provides a range of supports to women and children on the Atherton Tablelands.
Immediate short term emergency housing
For women and children escaping domestic family and violence. Our housing is independent and safe.
Referrals may come via DVCONNECT, self-referral.
DV Court Support & Safer at Home
We provide a Court Support Service for women seeking Domestic Violence Protection Orders, and escaping violent situations.
- We provide Court support at the Magistrates Courts in Atherton and Mareeba.
- Provide assistance with making private applications for Domestic Violence Protection Orders.
We work with the courts, police and clients to assist women and children to stay safe in their home. Staying in your own home is an option for some women – if you have a protection order that states the respondent is not to enter or remain at the place where you are living, or that the court has ordered the respondent to vacate the premises.
- We can assist with practical aspects of staying safely at home and make arrangements for the safety upgrades to be made to the woman’s home.
