How can you help?

SAHSSI appreciates cash donations to be able to purchase new items for women who move from crisis accommodation into a home.

100% of donations go directly to clients needs.

Cash donations also support women with transport when they must relocate for their safety, medication and other specialist medical assistance.

All cash donations over the next three years will go toward providing additional accommodation for homeless and at risk women and children across the Shoalhaven Illawarra District.

The women and children appreciate your support.
Thank you.
