Who are we?

The Lillian Howell Project is a specialist homelessness service, providing medium to long term 24 hour, on-site gender specific supported housing for up to 11 young women and girls from the age of 13 to 17 years. Lillian's has been operating in Sydney's Inner West since 1988. Lillian's aim is to provide these young women, who are survivors of child sexual abuse, neglect or family violence, with a stable and non-judgemental environment. We have provided this service for over 26 years.

What we do?

Lillian's offers a trauma informed care approach that is reparative and empowering and in fact has been a pioneer in this area. Our approach is one that as well as providing a safe and secure setting, builds the capacity of the young women through modeling reliable and consistent behaviours. Over an extended period of time the competency and confidence of each young woman builds, and their capacity to make autonomous and independent decisions about their own future grows. Lillian's environment allows the young women's trust and assuredness to develop so that they are able to achieve their goals of completing their education, gaining employment and progressing to independent living. Lillian's has long been regarded as providing a benchmark in high quality, relational based care, providing a much needed, gender-specific, medium term to long term supported housing option for young women within the specialist homelessness sector. Over this time, we have supported many young women escaping family and domestic violence, who have experienced trauma, abuse and neglect, to heal, flourish and break the cycle of homelessness.

Why are we important?

Over an extended period of time the competency and confidence of each young woman builds, and their capacity to make autonomous and independent decisions about their own future grows. Lillian's environment allows the young women's trust and assuredness to develop so that they are able to achieve their goals of completing their education, gaining employment and progressing to independent living, to heal, flourish and break the cycle of homelessness.

Why we need help?

Our service, which has been operating for 26 years, is not receiving the appropriate funding it had in the past. Your support can provide the girls and young women the extra things that the current budget may not allow for. Your continued support in Lillian's is greatly appreciated.
