Upcoming Events

Every Woman deserves a safe and positive future

Help us raise $100,000 over the next 6 weeks to pay for urgent repairs and compliance works for the new HKWS Shelter that you helped us buy last year.

The lease on our current property has expired and we can’t afford to continue paying rent and a mortgage. We have less than two months to move into our new premises.

Donate now and help us ensure women, and women with children have a “Safe & Sound” Shelter to recover and rebuild their lives.

Return and earn

Did you know you can select HKWS as your charity when you return and earn?

Click the image to hear more from our President Louise McCann about why she and her family are getting behind this initiative.

And you don’t have to be in our state to donate to us through Return and Earn using their new App.

Join #TeamHKWS in this year’s City to Surf.

Run for Shelter

Come and join us for some fun while raising money for women who need our support. 

You can run, walk, skip or stroll with the HKWS team, or you can sponsor a family member, friend or yourself  to “Run for Shelter” on your own.  

Your support helps women experiencing domestic violence and homelessness. Every dollar, for every kilometre counts. 

It’s a simple two-step process:

Step 1: Register on the City2Surf website

Step 2: Setup a team here and begin fundraising

See you in August!

A Bright Future for Yvonne

Yvonne fled her violent husband and established a new life with her teenage children. Underweight, anxious and with no financial security, Yvonne struggled to make ends meet. On the brink of homlessness, Yvonne turned to HKWS for help.

A New Beginning for Kate

The death of her two sons led to the breakdown of Kate’s family. Her husband began abusing her and she turned to alcohol to mask the pain. On the verge of a breakdown, HKWS was there to help Kate recover and turn her life around.

A Safer Path for Sara

Sara, 35 years, arrived at HKWS after ending her 14-year marriage. The trauma of a miscarriage caused by violence finally gave her the strength to leave.
