Staff are on site 24/7 and the Foundation operates a weekly on site clinic with St Vincent’s Hospital Mental Health Service (local health provider). Transitional Housing: In Partnership with St George Community Housing, B Miles Women’s Foundation operates close to 20 Transitional Housing properties across inner Sydney. Individual women sign leases for the properties, seeing them have access to safe and secure housing, while our outreach team meet with the woman weekly to provide case management and support to assist with mental health recovery and to secure long term affordable housing. Outreach Team: The Foundation has a team of Case Managers who provide support to women who are currently housed but referred to us for support to prevent an episode of homelessness. Clinical Support Program: The Foundation engages a Clinical Psychologist who provides psycho-education groups to assist and support women with recovery from mental ill health.
