OUR VISION IS TO CREATE A SOCIETY THAT IS FREE FROM FAMILY VIOLENCE
Emerge Women & Children’s Support Network is an independent organisation delivering 24/7 housing and support services to women and children at a time of crisis; and provides vital outreach to women and children living in the community, often with perpetrators in their own home.
Founded over 40 years ago, Emerge is the leading family violence and housing service in southern metro Melbourne, supporting women and children from across Victoria.
We offer a safe place to live and support women while they navigate the myriad of services to start again.
As part of our refuge and outreach services, we offer tailored programs aimed at assisting women to rebuild their lives and learn new personal and professional skills as they begin their journey towards independence.
We have DGR status and donations over $2 are fully tax-deductible.
Emerge is registered with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profit Commission.Read More
