Wellington Women’s House is a safe home for anyone identifying as a woman, over the
age of 18, on low income or in transition. We have a small staff team who provide support
and advocacy to our residents. We depend on the generosity of volunteers, donors, and
organisations to help us provide a safe haven to wāhine in need.
We have 16 rooms at the house, and most women stay between 3 and 6 months. Our
residents come from a wide range of backgrounds, and may include women:
• Living with mental health struggles.
• Who need the company of others.
• In transition between homes.
• Who have left a harmful or unsafe environment.
Our vision is that every woman in Wellington has a safe and comfortable home that enables
her to meet her needs.
