McAuley Community Services for Women

McAuley Community Services for Women

This service support women and their children who have experienced, or are at immediate risk, of serious harm: through physical and emotional violence, threats, sexual assault, and stalking. They provide 24/7 crisis support and secure and immediate accommodation, typically for seven-ten days.

Our refuges provide longer-term (up to around 13 weeks) safe accommodation for families escaping violence who are still at risk and have nowhere else safe to go.

McAuley House in Footscray supports up to 25 women.

In 2019 McAuley House Ballarat opened its doors, accommodating seven women.
