Introduction

Hawa Shelter Home is an umbrella frame work of Star Welfare Organization for women’s rights & access to social inclusion, that is located in street # 2 new abadi kot fareed city Sargodha, Punjab. It provides services for the survivors of Gender Based Violence since 2008. We maintain a 35-bed shelter location for women who have left abusive relationships with or without their children and an off-site location for women in the community who are seeking support.  Agency staff provides counseling, safety planning, women and children’s groups, legal and court support, referrals, economic rehabilitation, and information and education about violence against women and girls. So that women are fully empowerment and equipped with required skills for successful re-integration into the society.

It is one of the few facilities in Seattle that accepts women with male children up to age 18, because we have to manage a separate shelter for children, that is Star Child Care Center (SCCC) for the facilitation of male children up to age of 10 to 16. This shelter is designed to create an enabling environment to develop and demonstrate a system which leads to full rehabilitation and self-fulfillment of survivors of Gender Based Violence (GBV) that provides shelter and support services to women and their children, who are homeless for any of the following reasons:

  • Domestic Violence
  • Human Trafficking
  • Financial Hardship
  • Eviction
  • Family Problems
  • Loss of Employment
