What is Lily House

Details about Lily House and what we stand for

    Home / What is Lily…

We live in a society where teenage homelessness is dramatically rising, domestic violence is rampant and many young pregnant women and mothers are offered little or no support as they face the future.

 

Lily House seeks to directly address this problem by providing tangible support and accommodation for these women at the moment in life when they need it most!

 

Lily House- A Place of Life and HopeLily House is a women’s accommodation centre that was opened in May 2008 as a response to a need for temporary housing for women during a period of readjustment in their life. At present one home is in operation as part of a long term vision for a series of homes on the Sunshine Coast and beyond. These homes will offer short and long-term accommodation, with the aim of assisting young women facing hardship and helping them to integrate into the community with a sense of hope and purpose. Lily House focuses particularly on young pregnant women in need of support to enable them to give birth to their babies and establish themselves in the community with the basic skills and support needed to create a loving safe environment in which to raise their child.

 

Since opening its doors, Lily House has provided assistance to women experiencing various forms of crisis; young mothers and infants fleeing domestic violence, homeless women of all ages and pregnant young women.

 

Lily House aims to bring wholeness to women from all walks of life, being committed to serving the total person physically, emotionally and spiritually. Lily House is staffed and maintained totally by volunteers on the Sunshine Coast. Residents have been introduced to Lily House through referrals from local and government organisations, local churches, community groups and private recommendations.

 

Lily House offers its services to young women in need.
