"The Role of Housing in our Response to Family Violence" A submission to the Royal Victorian Commission into family violence by Women's Housing Limited.
Women’s Housing Ltd would like to send a big thank you to the Bunnings Group for their generous donations. Several Bunnings stores have provided gift vouchers, energy efficient lights and household goods.
The Bunnings Group have also assisted tenants to fix the garden at the Berwick Rooming House including re-potting plants, planting herbs and providing outdoor furniture.
Women’s Housing Limited believes a home is not just a roof over your head. With the support from organisations like the Bunnings Group we are able to provide additional services to improve the lives of our tenants and help them feel safe and secure.
Thank you for the wonderful support!
Berwick Art Program
With the support from the City of Casey, Women’s Housing Ltd and Amanda Foster at Snoop Art are developing an art program at the Berwick Rooming House. Through a series of six workshops tenants will explore art as a way to find peace and feel safe, build self esteem and pride and at the same time possibly change their economic future.
Each participant will be given the opportunity to acquire and learn skills related to the art medium that interest them. As a group, the participants will complete a mosaic panel that is to be displayed in the grounds of the Berwick House. Each person that participates will have a personally engraved piece embedded in the final Mosaics. Each participant is encouraged to create a personal piece that will signify a positive outcome and personal achievement.
We are excited to see the outcome…
It is no longer a vacant block… building commences!
Women’s Housing Ltd would like to thank Peter’s Place Opportunity Shop for their generous donation to the Mount Martha Arts Project. The Mount Martha Arts Project started from a grant provided by the Mornington Peninsula Shire and has grown to a long term productive tenant run art space. The project allows the tenants to utilise art therapy as an outlet to express themselves.
Financial support from Peter’s Place Opportunity Shop will provide an artist to facilitate the program and art supplies to continue the great work.
Peter’s Place Opportunity Shop is a ministry of the Mornington & Mount Martha Anglican Parish and is staffed totally by volunteers. Peter’s Place Op Shop is located at 3A Queen Street, Mornington.
“Come and visit us. We’d love to meet you.”
