“Thank you so much to my worker, at the Womens Centre and Dept of Housing. You have changed my world, I have never been so happy in my life before I walked through your doors. I’m loving my new place and I feel so good about myself.  Everything happens for a reason and I’m glad you were there to help me see that” Anna

“I appreciate how much your service genuinely cares about your families (their safety, their wellbeing, their dignity) and how skilled/professional the service and staff are, this is something that I feel the Womens Centre particularly does well” Community Health Practitioner

“Everything happened really quickly. I got a house (which I love). My support worker was really kind. I felt comfortable with her and my kids really liked her.” Nellie

“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” Amy
