Positive Pathways to Safety for Women and the Community is a Zonta House Refuge Association program. Zonta House Refuge Association was established in 1984 to provide crisis and transitional accommodation and to date has assisted over 8,500 women in crisis. The Positive Pathways program was developed from the need for more proactive means to assist women to break the cycle and as a response to the increasing number of women and families requiring support in the greater community.
Positive Pathways to Safety for Women and the Community is a preventative program assisting women to lead more independent, safer and fulfilling lives. The program has been established to service women who have experienced or are at risk of family and/or domestic violence, mental health issues and homelessness or any other crisis in their life. Positive Pathways partner with other community service organisations to provide a holistic and one-door approach, minimising barriers to seek assistance for those in need.
- Interagency Case Management
- Community Awareness
Our desire is to partner with leaders, individuals and organisations to deliver the services and reach out to as many women as we possibly can. The Positive Pathways programs will assist women and consequently also their family members, children, friends, colleagues and the greater community.
The innovative Positive Pathways to Safety for Women and the Community will enable Zonta House Women’s Refuge to provide a holistic service to women who are experiencing a crisis and create the opportunity for a better life.
