The Sanctuary – The Hills Women’s Shelter

The Sanctuary, The Hills Women’s Shelter aims to provide temporary supported accommodation for women and their children in times of crisis. 

Established in 2016, the aim is to provide a safe, non-threatening environment for women that will assist them through their emotional and physical crisis, as a result of homelessness and/or domestic violence.  The safe haven is a large renovated home featuring six bedrooms, five bathrooms, two kitchens and two lounge areas catering for between 25-30 people at a time.

The shelter costs approximately $400,000.00 annually to run and relies on the support of the community. 

On 18 June 2016, the 13th Vanags Family Charity Night raised $30,000.00 to support this worthy cause.
