From July 2020 – July 2022, 8 in 10 women and children were turned away from the Hobart Women’s Shelter due to a lack of space.

That’s around 1,825 women and children with nowhere to go.

Buy a brick and help build someone's future.

In Tasmania, there are not enough homes for people to live in and rents are unaffordable.

Women and children are staying longer at our Shelter as there are limited affordable housing options available. Unfortunately, many of these women and their children will stay in, or return to, family violence situations where they are at risk of experiencing further trauma, injury, and in some cases death.

The number one reason why women will not leave a family violence situation is the fear of being homeless.

Our Plan.

We have embarked on an ambitious project to build 25 new permanent homes for women and children facing homelessness by 2024 to add to the Shelter’s existing 25 emergency housing units – 50 homes for 50 years of service.

Based on discussions with women with lived experience of family violence and homelessness, we aim to create quality homes that are uniquely designed to ensure safety, respect, and connection to the community.

Can you help us reach our goal of building 25 new homes for women and children in Tasmania?

Donate today and help build homes for women and children.

All gifts over $2 are tax-deductible. All donations from this campaign will be used to support land, planning, and construction costs.
