Services & Support

Every year we connect with more than 30,000 Western Australians who need our help.

Ruah helps vulnerable and disadvantaged people navigate the trauma of homelessness, domestic violence and the challenges of living with chronic mental illness.

Decades of experience has taught us that every client’s journey is different and their problems are complex so they need support in many different areas of their life – and often from many different service providers.

Our services are carefully integrated, wrapping around our clients to give them the individualised care and support they need. We are there when they need us most. Specialist teams work work closely together delivering more than 20 separate programs in:

More than 260 staff, many with lived experience, operate from 12 locations across Perth, Geraldton and Albany, supporting people at our refuges, drop in centres, those who are living at home in the community or out on the streets.

At Ruah, we aren’t content just to manage the wicked problems of homelessness, domestic violence and mental health disadvantage. We are taking bold strides, through our innovation and advocacy programs, to solve these traumatic social problems for good. It is our mission and we do it because the lives of vulnerable people and the future of Western Australia depend on it.

If you need help escaping homelessness, or family and domestic violence, for either yourself or a loved one, please reach out to us. If you are looking for Mental Health and Wellness support you will need a referral from your doctor or healthcare professional.
