MCAULEY HOUSE WORKING BEE
McAuley Community Services for Women (McAuley) provides much needed services for women and their children who are escaping family violence; and for women who are homeless, primarily as a result of family violence or mental health issues.
McAuley was formed in 2008 by the Institute of Sisters of Mercy of Australia and Papua New Guinea to expand its commitment to women and children and to incorporate its two existing long-term services:
- Family Violence Crisis Accommodation (McAuley Care Program, formerly named Mercy Care) - A 24 hour safe house and children's program providing accommodation and support for women and their children who have experienced family violence (est. 1988).
- Accommodation and Support (McAuley House Program, formerly named Regina Coeli) - Medium-term community accommodation and support for women who have experienced homelessness and mental illness (est. 1986).
McAuley Community Services for Women is committed to advocate for a better, safer and just society.
The Rotary Club of Central Melbourne Sunrise have, over the last two years, worked on refurbishing the garden to provide a pleasant surroundings for the women using this service.
We also made new outdoor furniture for the garden.
