Good Samaritan Inn is a specialist service providing crisis, short-term and transitional accommodation and support for women, children and young people who are experiencing family violence or homelessness.
Each year, we provide practical and emotional support and case management to approximately 500 women, children and young people. Good Samaritan Inn welcomes women, children and young people from all different backgrounds.
Good Samaritan’s communal setting provides opportunities for mutual support and the companionship of others who share similar experiences of family violence. In recognition of the founders and trustees, the Sisters of the Good Samaritan and their Benedictine tradition, Good Samaritan Inn extends hospitality to the women, children and young people who are all welcomed as guests at the Inn.
Its communal model has benefitted many women, such as new mothers, women who are struggling with alcohol and drug dependency awaiting rehabilitation, and women who are extremely socially isolated.
