WPI was founded almost 25 years ago by a group of inspirational women to assist women facing disadvantage and housing crisis.


Who We Help

The women that we help come from a range of backgrounds and vary in age. They all have one thing in common – they have experienced housing crisis – and in many instances have been on the brink of homelessness. Unfortunately, many have also experienced domestic violence.


How We Help

We provide long-term housing solutions that change women’s futures for the better and break the intergenerational cycle of poverty.We work with a range of partners to expand our housing portfolio, broaden our impact, and above all to prevent women’s homelessness.
