Women for Women organising committee
 
Join us on May 25 for our Light Up A Life fundraising lunch with cocktails and entertainment in support of our Women's House.
 
The lunch will take place on May 25 at Luminare, South Melbourne at 12 noon. 
 
On the day you will have the opportunity to bid on some fabulous silent and rowdy auction items, as well as make a fully tax-deductible donation which goes straight to the heart of the Women's House.
 
The Women’s House is welcoming, safe and supportive environment for women who are experiencing homelessness or are at risk of becoming homeless.  Women come to seek support, a meal, a shower and a place to rest.  Those who access the House are often in crisis or experiencing difficulties due to a range of life experiences, including family violence, poverty, sexual violence, physical and mental illness, problematic drug and alcohol use.
 
The cost of running the Women’s House is $650,000 per year.  This covers staffing, food, activities expenses, vehicles, emergency relief and the physical cost of running the house.  Of this amount, $280,000 is provided by the Victorian state government and City of Port Phillip, and the remaining $370,000 is generated through Sacred Heart Mission Opportunity Shops and through fundraising. 
 
Without fundraising we simply could not keep our doors open.
 
We have 6000 visits per year by women to the house. Each visit is important. Each visit can change a life. We simply cannot afford to close the doors. Come along to our event and help keep our doors open.
