The Good Samaritan Inn, Melbourne, provides welcoming accommodation for women and children escaping family violence and homelessness. The safe and calm environment of the Inn also provides something less tangible, but no less important. Simple acts of kindness, a willing ear to listen, a non-judgmental attitude and providing valuable information and support allows guests to find their voice again. As a result, in just a matter of days, the women and children begin making room for hope in their lives. More than 300 women and children are accommodated each year.
