St Kilda Gatehouse works alongside vulnerable girls and women experiencing marginalisation in Melbourne. Your donation ensures young women, girls and women are receiving basic needs (swags, meals, identification, a warm shower, clothes); referrals to professional support for complex issues (homelessness, mental health, family & sexual violence; alcohol & other drugs) and a safe community through our support workers and programs.
