The Port Macquarie Hastings Domestic & Family Violence Specialist Service (DFVSS) provides crisis accommodation and support services to women and their children or single women escaping domestic violence or in crisis.
DFVSS provides many services through its four main service delivery streams;
Galbaan House - Crisis Accommodation
Liberty Cottage - Outreach Centre
Specialist Housing Support Project and Transitional Housing Program
Community Partnerships Against Domestic & Family Violence Project
The organisation was formed in 1980 as the Hastings Women and Children’s Refuge Inc. and has since expanded to provide a broad range of support services to those in need.
