McAuley Community Services for Women provides much needed services for women and their children who are escaping family violence, and for women who are homeless.

Following in the footsteps of Catherine McAuley – foundress of the Sisters of Mercy – we offer welcoming crisis and longer term accommodation, vital employment services, social and recreational support and children's services.

Each year we help around 650 women and children to rebuild their lives, supporting them on their journey towards independence and safer futures.

In the case of emergency please call POLICE 000. To access crisis accommodation call 1800 015 188

The Wisdom of Josh

Josh Pardo’s message about homelessness and family violence is clear – ‘everyone can try and make things better, even kids’. This week we pay tribute to Josh Pardo and his work.
