We help support women and children affected by family violence
Creating havens for a brighter future
Because You Matter
supports women and children who have experienced family violence by supplying and setting up the contents of their long-term accommodation. We create ‘Havens of hope’ for women and their children. Through a fully equipped and comfortable home, women are empowered to re-establish stability, independence and connect to their community.
Our services focus on women and children in the Northern and Eastern regions of metropolitan Melbourne.
“The people were so friendly and did a beautiful job setting up the house. When I found the flowers and note they had left me I burst into tears, they were happy tears. What I liked most was that it felt like home when I walked in the door.”
“My client is over the moon and so appreciative of the support in establishing a new home for herself after escaping a violence relationship. Everything was amazing.”
