Your support could mean the difference between a crisis situation involving abuse or a safe environment of positive attitude. It is no small act when you help support Sonshine Sanctuary in ending domestic violence and providing a loving environment for women and children affected by this tragedy.

Your Support Will Provide:

  • A physical place that is safe and secure where women and their children can live free from violence or harassment.
  • Emotional support and encouragement to help women to make plans for the future.
  • Guidance on housing, income, counselling, legal, health, childcare, schools, support groups, migrant services and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander services.
  • Emergency food and toiletries for families who are forced to leave their homes in crisis.

How You Can Provide Support:

Become a Sonshine Ambassador

Our Ambassadors assist in at least four ways: They pray for the Sonshine Sanctuary ministry; they promote Sonshine Sanctuary–its ministry and its needs–to their friends and associates; and they become financial members of Sonshine. Finally, it is the responsibility of financial members to elect Sonshine’s officers each year . By registering as an Ambassador, we are also able to keep you more informed with regular updates. 

Our Ambassadors as financial members are essential – without them Sonshine Sanctuary Association does not exist. Financial members are the ‘owners’ and the foundation of the organisation.
