On 9th September 2016 Women's Housing Limited attended Link-Up Melbourne 2016. The event was held to connect women and children who are experiencing homelessness or are disadvantaged in the housing market with free essential services in a safe place. Women’s Housing Limited would like to thank Link Up Melbourne for inviting us to host a table and talk to people about our service.
Family Violence Emergency Accommodation
Women's Housing Limited houses women who have experienced family violence and a recent call out for donations to support these women has resulted in generous donations from a number of organisations.
Big thanks to East Ivanhoe Grocers for the donation of non perishable food items. Included in their wonderful donations are tea, coffee, long life milk and cleaning products. Their ongoing support and commitment to Women's Housing Limited is appreciated by staff, tenants and clients.
Sisterworks Inc. Social Enterprise
SisterWorks Inc. was founded by Luz Restrepo, a political refugee from Colombia. Luz arrived in Australia in 2010 with her life in tatters and spoke no English.
"I felt like a nobody; frightened, isolated and disempowered."
Luz soon discovered that she was not alone. Along with a group of women experiencing similar challenges, she began to make and sell crafts around Melbourne. They understood that to support each other is also to strengthen each other.
SisterWorks Inc. aims to encourage women to tap into their underlying business and entrepreneurial abilities to find self-sufficiency. SisterWorks Inc. believe that together women are stronger and can create opportunities for personal and economic growth. SisterWorks Inc. firmly believe work empowers women.
