A safe haven for women and children recovering from family violence

Healing through Play

“Knowing no one knows where I am is a big relief and comforting, for both my child and I”.

The Good Samaritan Inn (located in Victoria, Australia) provides a safe haven, a welcoming short-term residential space where women and children can recover from the trauma of family violence. The guests at the Inn are supported to regain their personal strength and empowered to make clear and informed decisions about their future.

By providing practical emotional and therapeutic programs the Good Samaritan Inn supports women and children to find a confident sense of self and a path to a safe and happy future.

Donations for the Good Samaritan Inn support the building of a new play area, sensory garden and staffing costs for a new women’s work skills program.
