Mary’s House Services was established in 2016, when motivated members of the community on Sydney’s north shore agreed to take direct, affirmative action on the issue of domestic violence to save lives. Mary’s House Services provides accommodation and professional wrap around services for women and their children escaping domestic violence that enables our clients to be safe, hopeful and empowered to take the first steps in rebuilding their lives.

Mary’s House is 100% community funded and relies solely on the support of our local community and corporate partners.

Mary’s House Services professional services include case management, accommodation for up to five families and relocation services at Mary’s House and advice, case management, referral, support services and therapeutic programs at the Daisy Centre.
