The Women’s Housing Company provides crisis, transitional, social and affordable housing for eligible women. To ensure women are linked to the supports they need, we engage in partnerships with a range of organisations.
Women's Homelessness Support Service
The Women's Housing Company operates Homelessness Support Services in South Western Sydney. Our Homelessness Support Services provide accommodation and support to single women, women and children, and young people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. The service is funded by the NSW Department of Communities and Justice under the Specialist Homelessness Services (SHS) program.
Specialist Homelessness Services Partnerships
The Women's Housing Company has formal partnerships with a range of organisations focusing on women who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. Tenancy and asset management services are provided by the Women's Housing Company, supported by a Joint Management Agreement with partner organisations who provide specialist support services.
The Women's Housing Company has participated in the Connect 100 program for over three years, working with support organisations (NEAMI, Mission Australia, St Vincent de Paul Society and Domestic Violence Service Management) to assist people with a history of chronic homelessness to sustain successful tenancies.
Networking with other agencies
