Established in 1974, the Hobart Women’s Shelter is the second-oldest operating Women’s Shelter in Australia.
We are an independent, not-for-profit organisation that provides safe, emergency accommodation and support to women and children who are affected by family violence and/or those experiencing homelessness.
In addition, we provide medium-term accommodation (up to 2 years) for families.
The Hobart Women's Shelter is a powerful advocate for women and children experiencing family violence and/or homelessness. We work with local, State, and Federal Governments and other Stakeholders to influence policy and funding priorities. We work collaboratively with other homelessness and community services to provide individual support.
