On 31 August, I was thrilled to visit Servants Community Housing to see first-hand the wonderful work that volunteers have done to create a new women’s only rooming house in Kooyong.
This facility will provide a respectful and caring environment for women who need support during the most difficult time in their lives. The refurbishment of this house will provide a pathway out of homelessness for traumatised and vulnerable women.
This project was made possible with Federal Government start-up funding of $300,000 which I committed to at the last election. With the assistance of local volunteers, the funds have been used to renovate a house and turned it into a welcoming and comfortable accommodation for up to seven women.
