Data from the last census indicated that, for the first time, women over 55 are the fastest growing group of people who are homeless or facing homelessness.

Wayss CEO, Liz Thomas's article 'Older Women, The Hidden Faces of Homelessness', features in page 48 of the latest issue of Fusion Magazine.

Wayss in the 1990s

Then in September 1997 the organisation became WAYSS Limited with a Board of Directors and day to day management by the Chief Executive Officer.

Wayss underwent further transformation with the restructure of community housing and the funding of the Transitional Housing Management (THM) program. The Regional Housing Council ceased operation and transferred direct service operations to Wayss in 1997.

During this decade Wayss became responsible for the then South East Women’s Domestic Violence Outreach Service. Funding was also received to establish a Children’s Services Worker within the outreach service. SAAP funded Women’s Outreach Program was also transferred to Wayss in 1999.
