First to Know, First to Act

Safe Futures Foundation in partnership with Uniting Wesley successfully applied for funding to co-locate a family violence worker within the Homelessness Open Door service. Many women seeking homelessness assistance approach the open door service seeking housing following a relationship breakdown either immediately or after a number of months or years. Many of these women have experienced recent and long term family violence. The purpose of the co-located worker is to assist the crisis workers to recognise and respond to family violence issues, provide training on family violence responses and making a referral to the specialist agency if the women and children need support because of the family violence. The project was funded by the Lord Mayor's Charitable Fund in 2016-2017 and will continue into 2017-2018.

"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."
