At last I will have a place of my own – its mine forever and I can be safe
All women have the right to safe, secure, affordable housing choices.
Women’s Housing Limited (WHL) is a not for profit organisation that provides low costs housing to women at risk of homelessness. Women and their children make up an increasingly large percentage of those in need of affordable housing. Those groups that are likely to experience housing stress include older women over 55 and women who are forced to leave their home because of family violence.
Since becoming a Housing Provider, WHL has significantly expanded and diversified it's housing portfolio and housing development capacity. WHL has both the capacity and experience to deliver large-scale housing projects aimed at meeting the ever-growing demand. WHL will continue to advocate for the housing needs of women and children and contribute to the growth of affordable housing stock.
WHL also provide additional services including:
▪ Intake and assessment services for homeless women
▪ Distributing Housing Establishment Funds to assist women experiencing a housing crisis
▪ Housing assistance and referral to women exiting prison
Since our establishment in 1997, we’ve been listening to and validating women’s experiences, and acting as their voice in the housing sector.

“Start Small and Do It Well!”
On Friday 25th May Money For Jam Participants were treated to a special guest presenter.
Prabin Guatam from VIS Network, a digital marketing consultancy, volunteered his time and expert knowledge to talk about marketing and how the women could use digital marketing to further their business ideas. Prabin encouraged all women to find their passion and belief in their ideas.
“Start small and do it well!”
The woman practiced their 30-second ‘elevator pitch’. The session was well attended and there was a buzz in the room.
The gardens at Bayswater are having a makeover thanks to the wonderful volunteers from the Wantirna Seventh-Day Adventist Church.
Women’s Housing Limited believes a home is not just a roof over your head. With the valuable support from Wantirna Seventh Day Adventist Church we are able to provide additional services to improve the lives of our tenants and help them to feel safe and secure.
The project started on 15 April 2018 with volunteers redoing the watering system.
Then on 22 April 2018 the gardens at Bayswater were active again with more than 20 people helping to weed, plant, dig, shovel and just simply work hard.
Remarkable before and after photos…
Stay tuned for the final stage in a couple of week the gardens will be finished with a teen area and a children’s playground.
