Sisters in Safe Housing (SiS Housing) is a new initiative helping women and their families start a life free from domestic violence and abuse as well as connecting mature-aged women with suitable housing.

What is SiS Housing?
SiS Housing, launched by National Homeless Collective, is a community funded housing support service providing immediate rent and bond financial assistance to women and families escaping domestic violence and abuse. We’ll also be assisting mature aged women with limited housing options.

SiS helps to secure safe housing, so women and families aren’t forced to live in temporary accommodation, in their cars, or crammed in a single room motel. It’s the difference between being able to safely leave a violent home and not risk further harm or even death.

How does it work?
SiS is a payback loan that provides immediate financial support to secure a safe new home. Women and their families can then pay back the loan over time, without interest, at a pace that’s suitable for them. How is it different?
Many similar schemes take up to six weeks to be granted to the people who need them. For many women, leaving is a matter of life and death and six weeks is six weeks too long. SiS Housing provides support the next day, so women can secure their housing straight away. How can you help?
Thanks to a generous loan from ANZ Australia and money fundraised from National Homeless Collective, the administration fees for SiS are covered.

But we need your ongoing support to help provide more safe houses to women who need them. Every dollar donated goes directly to women and their families starting a new, safe life.

All donations over $2 are tax-deductible.

Sister’s In Safe Housing

SiS Housing is a community funded housing support service providing immediate rent and bond financial assistance to women who are escaping family violence and women who are mature age.

SiS is a pay back scheme where bond and rent loans are paid back over time to ensure more women are able to access the scheme.

This community lead initiative also invites the public as well and corporations and philanthropist to donate toward the immediate rent and bond loans for women needing urgent assistance.

SiS Housing was created out of a need for immediate rent and bond assistance where a person would come to harm if unable to access rent and bond. The scheme allows the loan recipe to pay back their rent and bond to allow more women to enter the scheme.

Imagine if the difference between leaving a violent home or staying, and risking being killed was nothing more than having your rent and bond paid immediately so you could leave. Imagine if the difference between sleeping behind a train station or sleeping in your own bed was only whether you had money for rent and bond to secure your own home.

These scenarios are real and are happening to women every day. We know this because we meet them and we pay their rent and bond to get them to safety. But there is only so much we can do.

With your help, even a small donation can make a big difference to how many women we can assist into safe and immediate housing. A one off or recurring donation can be made to our bank account or through PayPal. All donations over $2 are tax deductible.

Housing support services can’t always act fast enough. We can. Please help us help women to safety. Everyone deserves a safe home.
