Coffs Harbour, Bellingen and Nambucca Homelessness Support Service for Women

The service (operating as Warrina Domestic and Family Violence Specialist Services) provides support to women with or without children who are escaping domestic and family violence and are at imminent risk of homelessness. It provides supported crisis accommodation and transition support with or without accommodation, and intensive responses for women and children with complex needs.

It has a strong focus on Aboriginal women and women from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.

The service delivers prevention, early intervention, and rapid re-housing, and has specific strategies to ensure Aboriginal women receive culturally appropriate responses that meet their needs.

The service also has specific strategies to support women with disabilities, mental health issues, or substance misuse issues. While the priority group is women with children who are escaping domestic and family violence, support is also given to single women who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.

This service provides Domestic Violence Response Enhancement (DVRE) to strength their after-hours responses to women in crisis.

This service provides the women’s refuge:

  • Warrina Women’s Refuge.

This service supports: women; Aboriginal people; families
