Mary’s House has been working hard these past few weeks to bed down our internal procedures. We have a very experienced temporary person to oversee and advise our three case workers in their assessment of the many applicants recently seeking accommodation in Mary’s House. We are also currently seeking an experienced person as Executive Officer. Ten applicants for accommodation have been assessed in the last 2-3 weeks. Bearing in mind that our mission is to provide emergency accommodation for women and children escaping domestic violence, if a woman is homeless or needing drug and alcohol services, we work to refer her into a suitable situation other than Mary’s House. We have beds free at the moment and are accepting referrals from all over NSW. Two women and their children are due to come into Mary’s House this week. Our number to call for referrals is (02)8937209
As we approach the end of the financial year, remember that any donation you make to Mary’s House is fully tax-deductible.
