The Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Women’s Shelter provides temporary supported accommodation for women who are victim of domestic violence and/or homelessness. We provide a safe, non-threatening environment for women that will assist them through their emotional and physical crisis. Our Board also works with local, state and federal politicians to bring about policy change.
The shelter receives no government funding and is entirely dependent on donations. Every dollar received benefits the shelter directly. Our board and supporting committees consist of dedicated, unpaid volunteers. We aim to keep running cost to the absolute minimum, but keeping the shelter open is a costly affair though. Without boring you with the details, it costs $109 per day to house and feed one woman.
