Safe house seeks helping hands


You can make a difference...

Our third safe house is currently under construction.  Relocated last year, the Nest building was kindly donated by Braemar Hospital and is now in the final stages of the development.

"We have had wonderful support from so many everyday people in our community, local businesses and community groups.   It is nearly finished and we are excited to see it taking shape in its final stages."   - Roni Albert, Waikato Women's Refuge, CEO.

We are now working on the interior of the house and we will begin working on the landscaping soon.
