McAuley House Ballarat
In 2019 we opened new support and accommodation services for women facing homelessness in Ballarat.
A property previously used by the Sisters of Mercy has been converted into medium-term housing. In 2019/2020 support and accommodation was provided to 14 women who’d been homeless.
The building has been completely refurbished and has many of the trademarks associated with our pioneering services at McAuley House Footscray: individually decorated bedrooms each with an ensuite, vibrant artwork, a sense of tranquillity and space, and views onto a sunlit garden. It also has a communal kitchen and shared dining area.
