Lou’s Place is the only daytime refuge for women in Sydney.
We're a unique, community-based refuge for women in crisis, homeless, feeling isolated or needing support.
Women can come to our terrace house in Kings Cross to rest, eat, shower, wash clothes and enjoy some company. Lou's Place is warm, friendly and supportive; a place where women can feel safe and relax. We offer a range of activities and programs to build confidence, develop life skills and to have fun.
Lou’s Place also offers critical frontline services for women confronting the issues of: homelessness, domestic violence, mental health and addiction.
Our services include crisis intervention, ongoing case management, referrals and legal advice.
Lou's Place is a private charity with no on-going government funding. We rely on the generous support of our friends, partners and volunteers to continue our services.
