Women's Community Shelters Limited

The Haven - Nepean Women's Shelter


On average, one woman is killed every week by a current or former partner.


This could be your client, your colleague, your friend, your sister, or your daughter.


Between October 2016 and September 2017 there were 1,094 incidents of domestic violence reported in Penrith (please note that 70% of incidents actually go unreported).


The Haven – Nepean Women’s Shelter, is a community funded shelter providing crisis accommodation for women and children escaping domestic violence in the Nepean region. During their stay, we will provide tailored support and wrap around services to best enable them to live a life free of violence and move into transitional housing. 


Your assistance is instrumental in rebuilding these women’s confidence so they can regain control of their lives.

  • It takes approximately $500,000 a year to run The Haven.
  • We receive a portion of this from Women’s Community Shelters.
  • The remainder? We rely on volunteering, fundraising and community help from people like you.

We’re asking for your help. This is our community, and these are our women and children.


$100 will keep a woman and her child safe for 48hrs at The Haven. The Haven is a registered charity and all donations are tax deductible.


Thank you for your support.
