SHIFT provides a safe and sustainable environment for the women to reset their living circumstances. It aims to build networks and resources within the community and encourages past graduates to support the current participants.
We are a wellbeing project. Our focus is on the whole person: physical, emotional and mental. The physical component of the project encourages healthy life choices, which in turn encourages a healthy attitude.
The project supports participants integrate new skills, mindsets and behaviours as they move toward wellbeing. It also helps them participate in the local community by volunteering in social enterprise projects, learning the value of being an active community member.
Each participant has a tailored program with measurable goals and outcomes. Case management is provided for all participants ensuring their individual focus for the project is achieved.
Transitions are challenging. We provide a stable environment for participants to learn and understand the transitions in life and thereby navigate these times with more ease. By integrating with local community, we support their eventual transition into less-supported living conditions.
