42% of the homeless population in Western Australia are women with a large proportion being older women resulting from domestic violence, or relationship issues (the main reason), lack of financial resources, forced out of the workforce, death of an income earning spouse or health issues. UWA estimate just under 500 women sleep rough in WA.

Those women suffering abuse in the home sometimes the only course of action is to get into their car, take children if any, sleep in the car until assisted by government or not for profit service provider which may take days or in some cases weeks. The WA Police report each week there are some 400 domestic violence or assaults by a partner or family member in our State.

St Benedict’s will operate a 24/7 emergency accommodation hotline for immediate access to our proposed Shelter Community providing safety from which to re-establish and transition into independent living in a safe and positive way.
