Our strategic plan for 2018-2025 commits us to expand our accommodation services, regionally and nationally. In partnership with the Sisters of Mercy and Mercy Health Aged Care we will be working together to deliver more housing, employment opportunities and social support to women and children across Victoria. We will be incorporating elements of our successful McAuley House model of integrated support into the new services.

The first step involves the conversion of a housing unit vacated Sisters of Mercy facility at Ballarat East. This will be refurbished to provide safe accommodation for seven women, who are in a transitional stage of their journey to remain free of homelessness and/or family violence.

Employment support and case management support will also be available to the women. The new facility will begin operation in 2019.
