Family and Community Services Funded
The Macarthur Gateway is a project being delivered by Marcia Women’s Refuge, and operating from number 12 Browne Street Campbelltown.
The Macarthur Gateway project was funded by FACS under the Service Support Funding to assist Aboriginal women and children within the district area of Campbelltown, Wollondilly, Camden and Liverpool to access culturally appropriate services offered by the new Specialist Homelessness Services (SHS’s) in the South Western Sydney District.
This program was also funded to provide a cultural capacity building approach that builds cultural knowledge, connection, practices and skills. The service does this by providing cultural training, information and support to SHS’s within the South Western District.
The project works in partnership with SHS service providers within in the SWS District to deliver culturally sensitive co-case management services to Aboriginal women with and without children residing in crisis and or transitional properties managed by the new service providers successful tenders under the Going Home Staying Home Reform.
The Macarthur Gateway also provides direct standalone case management for Aboriginal women with or without children, who are homeless and or who are having difficulty in sustaining a tenancy. The service has a no wrong door approach to service delivery and welcomes referrals from all services, schools, play groups and pre-schools within the SW District.
The staff of the Macarthur Gateway have a vast range of experience and expertise in providing cultural support and advocacy to Aboriginal women and children, who are homeless or at risk of homelessness due to domestic, family and or community violence and other issues that relate to their current or long term housing needs.
