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.

The Expo showcased services and supports available to the Koorie Community.
Participants and attendees enjoyed a BBQ lunch while being entertained by the Koori Tiddas Choir and the Yappera Dancing Group.
Women’s Housing Ltd hosted a stall, met many attendees, introduced our service to the Koorie Community and gave away lots of goodies.
“We were so grateful to have been included in the expo.”
On 2 November 2016, Minister Marlene Kairouz officially announced the re-development of Women’s Housing Limited’s Newport Community Housing property. This project will provide 20 new long term affordable housing units for low-income women including older women and women escaping domestic violence. This project is possible because of the contribution from the Victorian Property Fund.
Minister for Consumer Affairs Marlene Kairouz was joined by Members for Western Metropolitan Cesar Melhem and Khalil Eideh to turn the first sod marking the start of construction on the apartments. “We’re working to make a significant difference in the lives of women fleeing family violence by providing affordable, long term housing in an area close to the services and job opportunities they need.”
