Crisis Assistance

We're the women supporting women and families in crisis. We support over 200 women and children on any given night.


Our Redfern office at 36-38 George Street, Redfern provides a personalised service to women and families who are homeless, at risk of homelessness or are experiencing unsafe situations. When people first come to WAGEC, whether it is in person, by phone or email, we talk to them about their situation and then refer them to the best services and programs for their needs.


We provide short term accommodation for women and families across the inner city and inner west of Sydney. Most of the women and children staying at these refuges have experienced domestic and family violence so we make sure that the people are connected to appropriate supports and that the properties are safe and secure.


We provide support to women and children in transitional properties for families and single women. In collaboration with Community Housing Providers, our medium term supported accommodation offers women and families the stability of affordable housing before they move into a more permanent home.
