Haven House East Malvern is a refurbishment and extension of a home for the Young Women’s Freedom Project, run by The Lighthouse Foundation. This home is the first Australian safe refuge designed to meet the recovery needs of these young women and girls (including those under the age of 18).

Since October 2018, The Lighthouse Foundation has been providing a unique program in a care home specifically dedicated to supporting girls and young women who have left or are at risk of entering into an early/forced marriage and escaping modern day slavery.  Referrals come from a range of sources including the Australian Federal Police and Red Cross. The Lighthouse Foundation provides 24/7 live-in care and wraparound therapeutic support to help young women overcome their traumatic life experiences, build relationships and heal in a safe and secure environment.
