Since 2002, WISHIN has been helping women in Melbourne’s north to create the life they deserve.

We support those experiencing, or at risk of experiencing, homelessness or family violence. We work to provide a holistic wraparound support which acknowledges the complexity of issues women and children face in their lives.

Run by women, for women, WISHIN provides a safe, compassionate service for overcoming trauma and getting lives back on track.
