Crisis Accommodation

Supported Accommodation for Women (with or without) Children

SAHSSI is a Specialist Homelessness Service and non-profit community organisation that provides accommodation, support and guidance in a safe environment.

SAHSSI has two women’s refuge services in the Illawarra and one in the Shoalhaven. Our crisis accommodation support services are accompanied by onsite case managers, that provide 9am – 5pm intensive case management support to women with or without children who are homeless and in a crisis situation such as escaping domestic violence. Supported accommodation is up to 6 weeks.  Upon exiting, this support can be linked to SAHSSI’s transitional housing and outreach case management support.

SAHSSI support services include housing information, coordinating specialist services such as counseling, parenting support, medical, legal, education and training, employment, mental health, alcohol and drugs support services, emotional support, advocacy, help you understand documents, forms, service processes and other support based on individual needs. 

 

Temporary Accommodation for women escaping domestic and family violence and their children

SAHSSI owns a temporary accommodation support facility in the Illawarra and manages another in the Shoalhaven.  Women who are fleeing domestic and family violence can access this service (for up to 28 days).  Assessment is completed for suitability in line with Family and Community Services – Housing NSW temporary accommodation policies.  Front line responders to domestic and family violence such as NSW Police or Accident and Emergencies can refer women to this service 24hours a day, 7 days a week. Upon exiting, this support can be linked to SAHSSI’s crisis accommodation, transitional housing, and outreach case management support.
