♦ Be part of a unique program where one woman at risk of homelessness can support another woman escaping an abusive relationship.
♦ Be there at the start. The Equanimity Project is about to launch a full pilot program. Help us fund it and be part of the solution to addressing DFV in Australia.
The pilot program alone will add hundreds of room nights to the system; helping to solve the ongoing issues women face gaining access to safe accommodation, in extremely stressful situations.
The Equanimity Project aims to tackle the issues of domestic abuse and homelessness among women head on and will involve individuals, communities and corporations to become a part of the solution.
This ground-breaking program will not only protect and provide a safe environment for women
escaping domestic abuse but will also involve and support women who may be at risk of fiscal and career stress, or who are feeling lonely and displaced in society or who may be even at risk of homelessness themselves.
♦ It revolves around our Nurture Carers, who will be financially supported with your help, to provide safe accommodation to a woman escaping unsafe and often violent situations.
Our Nurture Carers are special women hidden within their communities, who will play an exceptional role in helping another woman remove herself from an unsafe situation.
These amazing women will be able to assist by taking a woman, a woman with a child and even a pet into their home or onto their property and provide a safe and protected space in which to regather themselves and recover.
We are asking corporations, community groups and individuals to support us so we can recruit, train and support our Nurture Carers to start safekeeping women in our society.
