Beryl Women Inc began in 1975, the first women's refuge in Canberra. Since that time it has become an established service that provides short term, low cost crisis housing to women and their children who are homeless due to domestic violence.
The service is staffed by trained experienced workers, including women from indigenous and culturally diverse backgrounds.
Assistance and advocacy is offered to support women and their children and to meet individual needs.
Beryl Women Inc have premises with disability access for women escaping domestic/family violence that have disabilites.
