Phoebe House Inc. is an Incorporated Association funded by NSW Health under the non-Government Organisation (NGO) Program.
Phoebe House is a registered charity which was established in 1984 in recognition that women with children, who are on an Opioid Treatment Program, require support and assistance to stabilise and maintain treatment.
During its 30 year history, Phoebe House has lead the way in introducing a total life-style approach to reducing the harm associated with illicit drug use.
At Phoebe House we offer a safe haven and secure accommodation, and empower women to rebuild their lives, so as mothers, they are equipped with the parenting skills which assists them to provide the best outcome for their children.
Women who enter the Phoebe House program are more likely to have been touched by social factors such as poverty, socio-economic status, social exclusion, poor living environments, difficult life experiences, stress, lack of education, unemployment and poor nutrition, which impede their ability to cope and as such, the program is tailored to reduce the impact of these factors, when they return back into the community.
We work together with NSW Health, Family and Community Services, Housing NSW, Government, Non-Government Organisations as well as our peak body NADA in addressing the difficult and complex area of illicit drug use in the community.
Through our committed Board of Governance, case managers, staff, and our quality accredited service, Phoebe House is dedicated to building on its reputation, as the go to rehabilitation facility for women with children.
Phoebe House programs promote resilience and self-confidence to assist clients to re-enter the community with their personal goals fulfilled, armed with parenting and living skills and the ability to self-advocate when seeking assistance for themselves and their children.
Phoebe House, is steadfastly committed to our clients, and strives to maintain their continued physical, mental and emotional health, well-being and progression back into the community.
