Crisis HousingSupported accommodation for women (with or without) children
SAHSSI is a Specialist Homelessness Service and non-profit community organisation that provides accommodation and support in a safe environment.
SAHSSI operates two women’s refuge services in the Illawarra and one in the Shoalhaven. The 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 due to a crisis situation. In a SAHSSI refuge, supported accommodation is up to six weeks. Upon exiting the refuge, a client can be further supported by SAHSSI’s outreach case management support service which can include transitional housing.
SAHSSI provides support services to women staying in crisis housing. This can include housing information; coordinating specialist services such as counselling, parenting support, medical, legal, education and training, employment, mental health, alcohol and drug support services; emotional support; advocacy, help to understand documents and forms; service processes and other support based on individual needs.
