The Haven Whyalla - Introduction

The Haven in Whyalla is an initiative of Centacare Catholic Country SA (CCSA).  Women in abusive relationships can often feel isolated and afraid to reach out, so a group of volunteers came together to create a safe space for them in Whyalla.  The training for these volunteers is intense and can be confronting and triggering at times. 

the Haven is relatively new to Whyalla and Manger Michele will give the meeting an introduction to this wonderful initiative.
