Lily House assists women and their young child in a range of crisis situations. These include:
How Can We Help?
We're Ready To Help
Lily House does not offer in house counselling; however, we broker these services from professionals. Staff and volunteers are on the premises during normal business hours. We do not have a live-in house manager; therefore, we cannot cater for those who have drug or alcohol addictions but refer them to agencies more equipped to help.
Lily house caters for a mother and her child up to the age of three. Other children, who may be in care, are permitted to stay for visits depending on available space and capacity. We also have short-term emergency respite care for a woman and her children in a small self-contained accommodation.
Women who wish to enter Lily House will be made aware of a range of guidelines, boundaries, and expectations. These are in place to provide a safe and loving home for all residents. The guidelines are designed to encourage women to care for themselves and their children and be thoughtful of others. At Lily House we are family and we care about for one another.
