Pregnant and in a violent relationship, Bri reached out for help
"I don’t know where me or my kids would be if we didn’t find this place."
Since leaving the refuge, Bri and her children have settled into their new home and started rebuilding their lives. Bri is studying a Certificate III in Community Services.
"I have learnt to bond with my children and be myself again - a happy, bubbly person. I have learnt to love myself and be proud of the person I am and who I am going to become. My children are happy and confident and are smiling and talking more than ever," Bri says.
"I will never forget the other families and amazing staff; they will be locked in my heart forever."
Our Domestic and Family Violence Service provides therapeutic support to help women and children break the cycle of violence and resettle into safe, affordable housing. It provides families, like Bri's, access to specialised counselling, child therapy, training in life skills, and links to health, legal and specialist services.
