Launch Housing East St Kilda (LHESK) offers crisis accommodation, case management and advocacy services to women who are at risk of, or experiencing homelessness. Many LHESK clients have complex needs, are vulnerable and have experienced trauma.
This site is one of the only homelessness services in Victoria to employ and accommodate women only. It also offers services to trans and gender diverse individuals who identify as female.
LHESK provides a holistic approach to clients by supporting them to make connections to healthcare services and any other services that can assist clients to build a sustainable pathway out of homelessness.
This crisis accommodation service is a unique place for women experiencing homelessness as care is underpinned by a strong feminist framework.
There are 15 rooms available for women, including one that is pet-friendly.
LHESK has proudly supported women in the Melbourne community since 1995.
