WHAT WE DO
We provide a range of support services 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.
HOW WE DO IT
We work in a client directed and focused way – placing clients at the centre of everything we do. We work to build resilience and independence – we want to turn around the lives of the people we work with. We work to make them and their children safe. Our case management framework is client centred, culturally responsive and collaborative.
