“If you want to touch the past, touch a rock. If you want to touch the present, touch a flower. If you want to touch the future, touch a life.”

Nothing Changes Unless We Do!

Raise the collective impact within communities through leading and enabling individuals to be part of the solution.

The Power of the People is Stronger than the People in Power

We often underestimate how much power we, as individuals, have to effect change. Your participation and support will increase the awareness and response to reducing domestic violence and alleviating homelessness.

Your efforts, whether volunteering, fundraising, becoming a community advocate or simply your wonderful donation will have an enormous impact and help keep women safe throughout communities in Australia.

Philanthropy & Partnerships

Our corporate partnership program offers the chance to support an Australian first innovation and is essential to the work we do – and the life-changing outcomes we achieve for others.
