Thanks so much for choosing the Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Women's Shelter as your City2Surf charity. Your decision will make a real difference to the lives of many women in our community who are homeless, often due to domestic violence. Since opening our doors just two years ago, we have housed 138 women in crisis but unfortunately we turn away on average 5 women per week. As we don't receive any government funding, each year we need to raise over $450,000 to keep our doors open so your support is very valuable to us!
What we have achieved so far
Join our HKWS Team!
The Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Women’s Shelter offers crisis accommodation to 10 women at a time, who are escaping domestic violence and/or homelessness.
We receive no government funding and are entirely dependent on community donations and events like the City 2 Surf. Every penny we receive goes back into the shelter!
While we have 24/7 professional care at the shelter, the rest of the organisation is run entirely by unpaid volunteers.
