Often the needs of the women and children go beyond our funding capacity. It is through generous donations we can offer a variety of therapeutic programs for women and children aimed at promoting wellbeing, enhancing self-esteem, confidence, and empowerment. Examples of programs include communal cooking and meals, mindfulness, sports, art, and pottery. We also offer after-school and school holiday activities such as social circus, art, reading, and homework support groups.
In April 2022, the Hobart Women’s Shelter purchased a block of land through community support and donations which will be the site for our first 2 permanent homes for women and children.
