Wayss Voice

We believe it's important to give voice to issues of Family Violence and Homelessness. Through the experiences of victims and survivors, we learn how to improve our response and work towards a better Australia.

Wayss Response to Homelessness in our Region

Wayss is the largest provider of homelessness and family violence services and transitional housing in the Southern Melbourne Area.

Wayss is Breaking the Cycle of Youth Homelessness

Most people we work with cycle in and out of homelessness. Our ‘Step Ahead’ program in Melbourne Victoria is disrupting that.

Wayss Voice

Behind every statistic, is a very real person, with a very real story.

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.
