Donate to Sacred Heart Mission’s Women’s House

Client of Sacred Heart Mission's Women's House

Sacred Heart Mission connects people who are experiencing homelessness, disadvantage or social exclusion with a meal, friendship and support. Everyone is welcome at our table.

Through our range of services, we help people overcome disadvantage so they may have the opportunity to live a fulfilling life, as defined by them.

Fundamental to our services are Engagement Hubs, including the Dining Hall and the Women’s House, both located in St Kilda.

A Sacred Heart Mission Engagement Hub is a non-judgmental community space which welcomes people into a friendly environment. It works to build trust and a positive relationship which enables a person to seek support in their own time.

The enduring support and generosity shown by the Xavier College community enables us to continue this vital work to support the most vulnerable people in our community.

What is Sacred Heart Mission’s Women’s House?

The Women’s House provides a safe and supportive environment for anyone in need who identifies as a woman. Professional Case Managers at the house help to resolve immediate crises and assist women to improve their life situation.

In an average year the Women’s House opens its doors more than 7,000 times. Women come to seek support, a meal, a shower, a pathway out of homelessness, and a place to rest.

The Women’s House also helps women with housing, physical and mental health concerns, substance abuse issues, family violence, financial and legal matters, and social and life skills. Each woman is unique, but they all have one thing in common: trauma.

Why is it important to donate now?

Thank you to everyone in the Kostka Hall community for supporting people experiencing homelessness.

Your support today is vital. COVID-19 continues to push women in Victoria to the brink, as they are unable to afford rent, mortgage payments or daily living costs. There has been a surge in cases of domestic violence in the last 18 months and women in our community need a trusted support network they can turn to when they are most in need.

Your donation will help us to keep the doors of the Women’s House open.

Thank you for giving generously
