Crisis Accommodation East St Kilda

Launch Housing East St Kilda (LHESK) offers crisis accommodation, case management and advocacy to women experiencing homelessness in Melbourne. Many residents at LHESK have experienced violence and trauma.

This site is one of the only crisis services in Victoria to employ and accommodate women only and it also offers services to trans and gender diverse individuals who identify as female.

Support workers at East St Kilda provide a holistic approach to support and care for clients by helping them connect to healthcare, counselling and many other services.

LHESK has proudly supported women in the Melbourne community since 1995, and its care is underpinned by a feminist framework. This crisis accommodation service has 15 rooms for women, one of which is pet-friendly.

Launch Housing East St Kilda is located at 346 Dandenong Road, St Kilda East.
