Australia has a critical shortage of accommodation for low-risk people wishing to leave abusive relationships
You can help solve this problem by letting someone stay with you in your private home.
Who we serve
Our mission is to provide earlier intervention pathways, allowing people to escape abusive relationships before they escalate to physical violence. We provide safety and security, and nurturing and supportive environment, free from fear, and physical, financial, emotional, verbal, sexual or spiritual abuse. We help to empower people to live independently and move on in their life. Our highest priority is for the safety and wellbeing of our Guests.
We offer support to all our Accommodation Providers to enable them to provide the best possible environment and support to their Guests. We also ensure any questions or concerns are addressed as soon as possible to ensure our providers are happy to keep working with Safe Haven. Provider safety and contentment is a very high priority for Safe Haven Community.
It is difficult for an organisation to deliver outreach services if the client does not have a safe place to stay. We collaborate with our Referral Agency Partners by providing a safe place for their clients to stay. This then provides the Organisation with an opportunity to deliver it’s programs and services to their clients in a safe space. We also provide regular feedback and communications relating to the Guests they put in our care as an ongoing commitment to the safety and well-being of our Guests.
We offer ongoing support to any external Case Workers and Outreach Workers, by providing regular communication and feedback relating to our Guests. Where an external Case Manager or Outreach Worker is working with one of our Guests we will provide mainly contract management, conflict resolution and mediation services, while they focus more on addressing the personal needs of the Guest.
