With an increasing number of women entering the construction industry and NPM having 60% women within its offices alone, we thought it was time to support a women’s charity within the community.
WCS is an Australian charity and nonprofit organization which provides direct relief of suffering for disadvantaged and homeless women by establishing new shelters in partnership with local communities.
Their network of 4 shelters across NSW provide a safe and secure space for women and their children who due to physical, emotional or sexual abuse, family breakdown, financial strife, domestic violence, mental health issues or lack of affordable housing – are homeless.
Existing services cannot meet the demand for crisis accommodation for women who are homeless. More than one in two women across Australia who seek a bed in a crisis shelter are turned away every night, mostly due to a lack of space.
NPM will wrap a campaign maintenance van which will donate 50cents for every km travelled and create awareness for Women’s Community Shelter.
Women’s Community Shelters needs funding to continue its important work – providing safe and secure crisis accommodation for vulnerable women and children.
