Staying Home Leaving Violence is a specialised domestic violence program aimed at preventing clients from becoming homeless via the provision of intensive case management which is long-term, needs-based and integrated with key agencies.
We help women and children in Broken Hill who are escaping domestic violence to remain safely in their homes.
Services funded under the program work with the police and courts to remove the violent family member so that if she chooses, the victim and children can stay in the home.
Clients receive support services ranging from practical assistance such as installing security measures in their homes and help with financial, legal and personal problems.
What We Do
Staying Home Leaving Violence provides assistance to women in the Far West who:
are over 18
have separated from a violent partner or family member
choose to remain in their own home
This also includes women who experience ongoing abuse after separation from the abusive person.
Children of these women are also supported by the program.
The program targets women who choose to remain in the family home or another home of their choice. This is intended to include women who have previously escaped the family home in order to escape violence, but find themselves at risk of homelessness due to ongoing abuse by the abusive person.
