"The openness of our hearts can be measured by how wide we draw the circle of what we call a family."

Mother Teresa


A community-based agency that specialises in protection, safety planning and violence control planning in support of people affected by domestic violence. We undertake complex and high-risk family violence intervention work, and advocate the protection of vulnerable persons experiencing family violence, physical abuse, emotional hurts and psychological threats.
