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.
$50,000 Grant Awarded
McAuley Community Services for Women has been awarded a $50,000 NAB Community Grant. The grant will be used to strengthen our ground-breaking Engage to Change program, which assists employers and their employees deal with family violence in the workplace.
