Safe Futures Foundation

About Us

Safe Futures Foundation is a not for profit Specialist Family Violence Organisation that provides frontline services to women and children to help them escape control, abuse and violence and rebuild their lives. We have been responding to family violence and changing people's stories for over 40 years. Safe Futures is proud of its achievements and has grown to be the largest provider of crisis accommodation in Victoria - which includes 19 crisis properties and nomination rights to 39 Transitional Houses. We employ Intensive Case Managers and Women's and Children's Advocates across 2 main sites in Melbourne's Eastern suburbs. We are funded by the Department of Health and Human Services and the generous support of donors.

The Foundation supports women and children through three key programs:

  • Safe in the Community
  • Community Connect
  • Safe Children, Bright Futures

Our clients come to us through a range of avenues including referrals by Safe Steps, Victoria Police, Centrelink and self referrals.

Our Mission

The Safe Futures Foundation believes all children, young people and adults have the right to live safely in their community.
