In 2013 the Foundation donated 5 properties valued at $1.8M to WAYSS to provide housing for those at risk of homelessness. These properties have proven to be very valuable and beneficial to the families housed, majority of them being women and children escaping domestic violence.
“This program has proved to help meet a well established need to provide a high level of stability and certainty that vulnerable families escaping family violence have not otherwise been able to access.” WAYSS CEO Mr Kim Stowe
