What Do We Do?

The Sanctuary is a 6 bedroom shelter in the Hills District of Sydney, which provides short-term crisis accommodation to women and children who are homeless or leaving domestic violence. Women and their children are provided with around the clock safe and non-threatening, care and support and assistance to start a new life.

You can find out more information about The Sanctuary, including our Annual Reports and Financial Statements, on the ACNC website here.

The Sanctuary opened its doors in March 2016. Women’s Community Shelters supported and underwrote the establishment of The Sanctuary, and remains our major funding and operational support partner for the Shelter. The home has been beautifully renovated and generously provided rent-free by QIC/Castle Towers.

We are proud to be able offer support in our shelter to women with a disability, or those who care for a child with a disability.
