DOMESTIC VIOLENCE SANCTUARY
OUR PILOT FACILITY WILL PROVIDE A 50 WEEK WINDOW TO RESET, REFRESH AND PLAN AHEAD.
PEOPLE SAY 'TIME IS MONEY'.
FOR OUR RESIDENTS 'TIME IS LIFE'. LITERALLY.
The SANCTUARY will be our flagship operation which exists to shelter, serve, and protect 90 women and children each year who are escaping domestic family violence. The facility will provide turnkey solutions for each resident, naturally streamlining their psyche from fear to hope.
A SAFE HAVEN
24/7 SECURITY GUARDS
THREE BEDROOM VILLAS
The SANCTUARY is not like existing housing commission developments. We wholeheartedly reject that notion, and choose to create the Sanctuary grounds so as to stand apart for all the right reasons. With beautiful landscaped gardens and thirty sleek accommodation offerings, residents are encouraged to form meaningful relationships around various BBQ areas, aquatic spaces, playground and central community hub.
HAIR SALON & DAY SPA
The SANCTUARY will serve as a multi-generational asset to the wider southeast Queensland community, in particular the Gold Coast, where the facility will be located. Placing an immediate emphasis on saving lives, the completed project will produce lasting results that will positively impact the region in tangible ways. We are all about helping women and children in our care safely reclaim their dignity and self worth.
Single mothers escaping DV need a period of restoration in their life. They often don’t have the capacity to carry out the normal day to day routines for themselves or their children. This is where we step in. Residents are connected with doctors, counsellors, psychologists and other additional service providers who visit weekly on location, and work one on one exploring PTSD and DV trauma, helping to commence the healing process and facilitating a time of renewed clarity. As part of these sessions, complimentary babysitting services are provided along with daily school runs and return pick-ups accompanied by one of our guards.
Please consider joining us as we work towards a nation which champions the value of every human life, and where families and communities are strong in spirit, healthy and well connected. Relationships allow us to continue this work as we channel our resources into life-saving programs. Register your interest to receive a detailed donor information pack today.
