What are we doing?

Housing Support for Migrant and Refugee Women

Our program seeks to address stigma, challenging the multi-faceted feelings of isolation, guilt and shame faced by migrant/refugee women, to move out of and beyond violent relationships. The program will engage an additional Specialist Family Violence Worker to work specifically with women who who are staying in the relationship due to housing being a barrier to leaving. The role will include case managing the women as they are deemed to be at high risk and researching and exploring the various housing options that would suit and be safe and culturally appropriate to them.
