Women’s Community Shelters (WCS) is a DGR1 charity, registered with the Australian Charities and Not-for-Profits Commission. Our mission is to work with local communities to establish new crisis accommodation shelters for women and children who are homeless or leaving domestic and family violence. WCS currently has 7 operating shelters across NSW, with a further 2 due to open in late 2021. We need your help to establish and operate a much-needed shelter in the Revesby area for women and children experiencing domestic and family violence and homelessness. WCS will work with Revesby Worker’s Club (the property owner) and the local Revesby Women’s Shelter Steering Committee to establish a new crisis accommodation shelter for up to five women and their children, providing safe housing for around 3 months, casework support including referrals to medical, psychological, legal, educational and immigration assistance, along with specialised support for children. Women will be assisted to access pathways towards long-term affordable housing, employment, education and training and will be supported with ongoing assistance towards violence free futures. Our vision is for a shelter which provides immediate crisis assistance for women and children who need it, and a surrounding community which understands and assists in taking responsibility to help solve domestic and family violence.
