FemFound is built on ideas of empowerment, positivity, creativity and community. We believe that rape recovery should not be the lonely and terrifying process that it currently is. We see value in the sharing of a survivors journey, and in the expression of trauma through more creative and positively geared resources.
We simply don't know how to talk about rape. Thanks to victim blaming, associated shame, having only clinical resources available to them, survivors feel further excluded from the world they are a part of. This isolation makes the rocky road to recovery even harder.
We believe in the strength and ability of women to recover from trauma and sexual assault, when given a community to feel connected to and when they are unburdened by the weight of societal stigmas.

For over 200 years Wesley Mission’s commitment to its Christian faith has guided us to support and advocate for the most vulnerable members of our society.
We’ve pioneered a diverse range of services that address the needs of the whole person, not just their current challenges.
Thanks to more than 2,000 staff, over 3,000 volunteers and many supporters—in addition to strong Federal and NSW Government partnerships—these services now cater to a broad spectrum of the community, from children, youth, and families, to older people and carers, to anyone struggling with financial or domestic challenges, homelessness, addiction or mental health issues.
Youth Off The Streets is a non-denominational organisation working for young people who are homeless, drug dependent and recovering from abuse. We support these young people as they work to turn their lives around and overcome immense personal traumas such as neglect and physical, psychological and emotional abuse.
It is our goal that these young people will leave our care drug free, with a high school education, living skills and a full or part time job in hand.

The Girls Refuge
The Girls Refuge is located in Sydney’s inner west and each year cares for over 200 girls and young women either at the refuge or in the community. The refuge has seven beds - six for girls and young women to stay up to three months and one crisis bed for overnight stays. We also provide support to families and young women who are living independently.
Girls and young women who stay with us are homeless or at risk of homelessness due to family breakdown, domestic and family violence, trauma, child abuse, disengagement with education, misuse of drugs and alcohol, mental health issues and interaction with the justice system.
The Girls Refuge is a supportive, home-like environment where girls are able to concentrate on learning and education and receive assistance to stabilize their lives and move towards a brighter future.
