At Elizabeth Morgan House our core focus is Family Violence although it is not limited as we understand to support the community we need to ensure all support needs including cultural, family including children, housing, debt/financial, fines and mental and physical wellbeing amongst other goals are all being addressed. During this unpresented time of COVID-19 we have had to adapt to the change of not being able to support the community in our usual way of practice. Elizabeth Morgan House is still operating and although our face to face may be limited we are using other methods to support clients who at most at risk of Family violence, Elders in the community and community members who may be isolated.
