At Orana House, we believe in empowering everyone to make positive decisions to end family and domestic violence in the community. We’ve been supporting women and children in Perth for over 30 years. We’ll be there for you, too.
The Orana House Women’s Refuge provides safe, temporary accommodation and associated support services to women and their children who need to escape family and domestic violence. Our refuge has the capacity to accommodate five families at any one time, with a maximum of 24 persons. The premises were specifically designed to meet the needs of larger families, including those with disabilities and accompanying older male children.Read More
All women and children accommodated by Orana House are provided with a comprehensive case management service. Case Management is also provided to Outreach clients through The SWitCH Centre. This is a collaborative process of assessment, planning, facilitation, care coordination, evaluation and advocacy to meet their specific needs. Women meet weekly with their Case Manager to develop and implement their individual support plan and review progress and achievements. In addition, our staff members will often advocate for women and children with external agencies.Read More
Orana operates four transitional houses for women and children, providing a stepping stone to rebuilding their lives. Orana staff deliver a range of services to these families to increase their capacity to live safely and independently in the community.Read More
In addition to its direct service delivery, Orana House plays an active role in community education to influence a broader understanding of family and domestic violence.Read More
Supporting Women in the Community Holistically or SWitCH is our locally-based, integrated wraparound service for women and children experiencing family and domestic violence. We recognised that for many women, support is needed many months and even years after the crisis is over, and we wanted to provide a safe, welcoming place for them to come for support at any point in their journey.Read More
