Moving Out Moving On (MOMO) provides mobile outreach support to women with or without children in the inner city of Sydney, who are escaping/experiencing DFV and/or homeless or at risk of homelessness.
The service prioritises work with;
- Single women escaping domestic violence and homelessness
- Women with children escaping domestic violence and homelessness
A closer look at MOMO
MOMO provides services through outreach and works with people in environments like parks, library or cafés, essentially wherever clients feel most comfortable. We also rely heavily on formal agreements that we have with five services across the inner city. These services provide a space to enable us to meet with our existing clients and assist MOMO to be more readily accessible to people who may need our service.
Case managers provide support for women to:
- Access relevant services
- Refer to legal advisors
- Apply for and set up safe accommodation
In addition to the above, case managers also provide emotional and practical support as needed.
At MOMO we provide holistic case management practices that focus on a person’s wellbeing with an increased emphasis on safety particularly. This is due largely to the increased vulnerability of our clients as we find they are often itinerant, facing multiple complex issues which have been exacerbated or occurred because of the trauma experience from living with DFV. We assist these women who are living in the community to navigate the often complex systems associated with gaining housing and accessing support services that will enable people to move forward and closer to achieving their goals.
Some examples of support provided by MOMO include:
- Support to navigate and understand the different housing options available to you and support to complete documentation for access to financial support or housing assistance.
- Access to information and referrals around Apprehended Domestic Violence Orders (ADVOs) and Family Law (MOMO are unable to provide legal advice and will refer you to an organisation that can).
- Access advice, advocacy and supported referrals to other services (such as counselling, financial, health services, parenting support, employment and education).
Case managers are available in the following location each week and we encourage all women who may wish to access the service, to drop in for a confidential conversation during the hours listed below.
