Support women in our community

Sacred Heart Mission connects people, provides support and care services for adults of all ages and backgrounds experiencing homelessness, disadvantage, and social exclusion.

In everything we do, our aim is to build people's capacity to secure stable housing and enjoy a safe, independent and active community life. No matter where they are in their journey, we support them.

About the 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.

We provide options to vulnerable women to

  • Secure food, clothing, amenities, and well-being support.
  • Achieve safety from family violence, resolve and avoid crisis.
  • Develop confidence, independence, and sense of accomplishment.
  • Grow empowering social relationships and economic connection.

The Women’s House also helps women with housing, physical and mental health concerns, substance abuse issues, financial and legal matters, and social and life skills.

Each woman is unique, but they all have one thing in common: trauma.

Why it's important to donate now?

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 generosity enables us to keep the doors of The Women’s House open, and continue this vital work to support the most vulnerable women in our community.

Thank you for giving generously to the Women’s House.

Sacred Heart Mission acknowledges the traditional Aboriginal owners of country throughout Victoria and pays respects to them, their culture and their elders past, present and emerging.


Sacred Heart Mission believes that the diversity of abilities, genders, sexualities, relationship identities, bodies and cultures in our community enriches us all and should be celebrated. Everyone is welcome at our table.
