Lovewell Foundation recognises access to meaningful employment, quality health and safe housing as core human rights. They are key pillars to women achieving safety and wellbeing as women having the capacity to achieve financial security through sustained meaningful employment, supporting the ability to maintain safe housing and exercise informed choices in health care.
We work with women who are re-building their lives, counting on counsellors, social workers, local businesses and providing programs to reset, re-skill, and rehabilitate women as they establish a new life, reconnecting with broader community.
Enabling women’s safety, empowerment and independence
To champion all women to know that they are loved, respected and created with a purpose
Courage, Respect, Compassion, Faith
Lovewell Foundation was initially known as Hope Foundation, founded in 2007 with the intention to support women exiting the sex industry and women managing addictions.
In 2016 Hope Foundation opened the Lovewell Cafe, its own social enterprise offering training, employment and hope to women experiencing vulnerabilities.
In 2020 the cafe and the foundation went through a re-branding process, transitioning from a traditional into a contemporary women’s service. It respectfully acknowledges the historical foundations of Hope Foundation as a Christian organisation while maintaining a commitment to inclusivity of women from all faiths, cultures and diversities.
