Staying Home Leaving Violence
What is Staying Home Leaving Violence?
Funded by Family & Community Services it is the process of providing support, tools and strategies to ensure FEMALE victims of Domestic or Family Violence are able to remain safely within their own home or home of their choice. (The perpetrator leaves.)
Each victim is supported during the AVO process, and we use group programs to build self- esteem, and support networks.
Case management addresses common barriers to leaving violent relationships, namely: stable accommodation, maintaining support networks, employment and education/childcare.
