Our Services

Community Connect

Safe Futures Foundation provides a twenty-four hour , seven-day a week, state-wide crisis response for women and their children. The response allows women and children at imminent risk to leave their homes and receive immediate support and safe accommodation.

Every woman referred to Safe Futures is accommodated with her children in a fully self-contained unit some of which have universal access.

Our model of service delivery is premised on a triage approach with comprehensive assessment of support needs, risk, and safety informing the referral pathway. If so, women are immediately referred to the Foundations Safe in the Community team. A clearly identified benefit of early assessment is that women are able to determine if returning home, or to a new home in the same community with increased safety measures and community support is a possible and preferred outcome. If it is determined that returning to their community is not a safe option, relocation to a new community is then considered by the Community Connect team.

Highly skilled advocates assist woman to determine her preferred outcomes and inform the preparation of individual case and safety plans for each woman and child.

Safe Futures Foundation also provides longer term responses to clients with multiple and complex needs who require greater levels of support to recover from the trauma of Family Violence.

Currently the organization provides more than 200,000 nights of accommodation and support per year, with two-thirds of that used by children.

"Your caring hospitality, kind thoughts and heart of gold are what have made our stay one of the most memorable experiences we will never forget. What you all do for us and the other survivors of violence out there is truly inspiring. We will always be grateful for all that you have done, and wish you all the best for what the future may have for you."
