If you’re experiencing domestic violence, use this information to make a plan that works for you.
Violence at home can lead to no home at all
Domestic violence is the principal cause of homelessness among women.
55% of women with children and 37% of young single women who seek assistance from specialist homelessness services report that they are escaping violence.
Often when women flee from an abusive partner, they leave with very few, if any, possessions and have nowhere to go.
Emerge assists women and women with children fleeing abusive relationships to find suitable housing. Emerge belongs to a network of partnerships made up of other service providers covering housing, community services and support.
