Transitional Housing

What is Domestic Violence

Transitional Housing

Starick’s Housing of Women in the Community (HOWIC) program provides transitional medium to long term housing in the south-east metropolitan area for women and children who are escaping family and domestic violence and who would otherwise have difficulty securing safe, affordable housing.

In partnership with Access Housing, Starick also provides transitional housing.

Transitional housing is primarily used to accommodate Starick clients and clients of other refuges. Ten families can be supported at any one time.

Properties are located close to community services and amenities. The location of the properties is important to facilitate our clients' return to independence and stability, and to encourage them to access the services available to them within the community, with the guidance and support of our outreach workers.

For information about accessing Starick's transitional housing, contact Starick's outreach worker on 9398 5039.
