SAHSSI supports over well over 1300 women each year and at Christmas time we support over 570 clients that need help over the Christmas period.

This year has been wonderfully overwhelming with the Illawarra and Shoalhaven communities dropping off Christmas gifts and food for our clients and we are very appreciative to all who donated to us for Christmas and throughout the year.

We thank all the business, organisations and community members (anonymous donors, families and individuals) and who wanted to send a clear message that there’s a lot of love in the community for homeless women and children, especially over the Christmas period.

We are pleased to inform everyone that because of all the community donations, all of our clients received a gift or two!
