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.
With the current rental crisis, demand for our housing services is steadily growing. Orana has set a goal to acquire four more transitional houses by 2023.
Crisis Care has access to a central register of vacancies and will refer a woman to the most appropriate place. For housing referrals, call Crisis Care on 08 9223 1111 or FREECALL 1800 199 008. The refuge will then conduct an assessment directly with the woman and, if she is offered a place, Crisis Care will also assist with transport if required
