women and children can escape Domestic Violence each year, with your donation towards ‘Open Support bricks’

8
individual state-of-the-art apartments will be built by mid-2023 with your generous support

Help us pave a future away from domestic violence for women and their families every year

Open support has just received DA approval to construct a new Domestic Violence crisis accommodation facility on a site we own.

It will provide 8 individual apartments to provide dignity and safe independent living for an additional 110 women and their children each year. We have received a grant to fund the safe house facility, but due to massive increases in building costs since the pandemic, we require an extra $500,000 to complete the build. We are passionate about this project but we need your help to get it across the line by mid-2023.

Your support can change lives

With your support, our programs will positively change the lives of women and children impacted Domestic & Family Violence. Will you help pave the way for women and children to reach a safe and empowered future?
