Violence against women and girls is one of the most widespread, persistent and devastating human rights violations in our world today. Women's rights activists have observed 25 November as a day against gender-based violence since 1981.
Safe Haven Community plays a small but important part in helping to keep women safe from domestic abuse and we need your help to keep providing this important service.
Across Australia, there are 7.2 million spare rooms in private homes that are vacant for 90 per cent of the year. Safe Haven maintains a national database of security-vetted community members who generously donate their spare rooms to someone that needs a safe place to stay. Together we offer a supportive environment for women seeking escape from abusive relationships. We connect vulnerable women to this network of providers and other professionals, offering guidance to help them build a better future, free from fear and abuse.
Our Placement Team and Case Workers ensure that everyone is safe and happy for the duration of the stay. But as demand for our service increases, so does the resources we need to provide professional case management services and support for the women trying to leave abusive relationships
This is where we are asking for your help.
We are seeking the help of 2000 generous people to donate $5 a week for 52 weeks. Your donation will provide the case management, financial literacy and other support, as we move people at risk into more stable, longer-term accommodation. We believe this kind of action can be crucial to get women away from abusive partners and the real possibility of further serious, physical harm.
$5 a week, about the cost of a cup of coffee, is all it takes to help a woman escape domestic abuse.
The need to give women the real option and freedom to remove themselves and their children from abusive homes is more than apparent. With your help, Safe Haven Community can be one small part of a solution that helps to end violence against women.
