Women's Refuges

Since 2008, ADRA has partnered with JEM (Justice Empowerment Missions), to provide medium to long-term accommodation and rehabilitation to marginalised and homeless girls and young women through Asher Housing.  As well as a caring nurturing environment, opportunites are provided for counselling, arts programs, mentoring, relationship therapy and referrals for those affected by issues such as family breakdown, abuse and drugs.  In addition, this project provides ongoing support including independent education, employment training and crisis help for women and families connected to Asher Housing in the surrounding communities.
