Women's Community Shelters Limited

The Sanctuary - The Hills Women's Shelter

In March 2016, Women's Community Shelters, in partnership with the Hills Shire community, threw open the doors of The Sanctuary -The Hills Women's Shelter.


The Sanctuary provides safe, temporary, supported accommodation, for up to 3 months, for women and their children who are escaping homelessness and/or domestic and family violence.


The Sanctuary offers a client-centered approach to collaborative case management. Our specialist team of case workers, led by our shelter manager, work around the clock, 24 hours a day, to support our clients. We also offer a child-focused case worker, who specialises in childhood trauma and its effects. We work hand-in-hand with our clients to support, advocate for, and help them to access all that they might need to live safe lives free from fear.


Our shelter is unique in that the property was provided and renovated to a beautiful standard by QIC (Queensland Investment Corporation), the owner of Castle Towers. There is strong community support for the work of the shelter, including the generous provision of incredible climbing and play equipment by Castle Hill RSL Group.


The Sanctuary provides a safe-haven for women and children regardless of their age, sexuality, cultural and linguistic diversity. The Sanctuary is also one of a few shelters in NSW that can provide for women with a disability and women with larger families.


100% of your donation to our appeal will support The Sanctuary - The Hills Women's Shelter with its ongoing operational costs.


Thank you from everyone at The Sanctuary for helping to change the lives of vulnerable women and children.
