and in a publication by Urban Melbourne:
“…a new women’s housing development within the Hobsons Bay suburb, which upon completion will provide another outlet for affordable and safe long-term housing to women, many of whom are escaping family violence…Women’s Housing Ltd’s Judy Line says that increased public awareness campaigns surrounding domestic violence against women has helped secure more funding for projects of this ilk.”

With the support from the City of Casey, Women’s Housing Ltd are developing an art therapy space at the Berwick Rooming House. Through a series of workshops Women’s Housing Ltd would like to assist the tenants to 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.
Jamie Chimirri has a strong background in fine art, photography and graphic design. Jamie will be run five tenant led workshops exposing them to different art mediums, showing them how to use art to express themselves and tell their story.
Also involved with the project will be Open Canvas. Open Canvas is an organisation enabling homeless and other economically disadvantaged people to earn an income and be recognised and empowered through their art. Open Canvas will assist in setting up online profiles, mentoring programs, masterclasses and the provision of art supplies.
Ladies Let’s Roll
Shebah is a driving service founded by women, operated by women drivers and designed for women passengers. Enjoy the safety and certainty of being part of an all-female network.
George McEncroe, a single mum of four, founded Shebah when she realised her daughter was concerned about her safety on the way home at night.
Safety and security for all women is important to Women’s Housing Ltd and Shebah agrees. Shebah’s all-female drivers have undertaken extensive background searches and safety checks to create a safe passage. Safety is a priority!
More good news is …whenever you roll with Shebah you will be making a difference! Shebah will donate 1% of all fares to charity. Women’s Housing Ltd is proud to be one of those charities.
A big THANK YOU to Wild Pumpkin for donating children’s gifts and toys. These items will delight our families and help to put a smile on many children’s faces!
