Lismore Homelessness Accommodation Support Service for Women and Children Experiencing Domestic and Family Violence

This service provides the women’s refuge, Lismore Women's and Children's Refuge. 

The service identifies young and adult women with or without children who are escaping domestic and family violence and are homeless or at imminent risk of homelessness, and supports them to remain safely in their existing housing, or assists them to secure and sustain safe and stable housing. 

The service provides crisis and transitional accommodation and support while working with clients to resolve their homelessness as quickly as possible, and provides women who have been re-housed after being homeless with multifaceted supports to stay housed. This may include intensive responses for women with complex needs. While there is a separate service for Aboriginal women and children and young people escaping domestic and family violence, this service will also assist a significant number of Aboriginal women and their children.

This service supports: women; families

Lead provider: On Track Community Programs Ltd. Provider partners: Northern Rivers Women and Children's Services.
