We have a wonderful group of volunteers that help keep the Women's Housing Limited community development program fun and full of events.
Thanks to the City of Yarra we had an opportunity to thank Helene Levin (pictured accepting certificate from Mayor Cr Roberto Colanzi), Cheryl Widlend and Gina Poulos at an official ceremony at the Collingwood Town Hall on 10 May 2016.

Money Focused Single Sessions for Women
Let's Talk About Money
Women's Money Wellness
Per Capita is co-designing a facility together with a group of women 50+ that will help women to strengthen their financial position and find ways to make additional income through micro-enterprise. CAPPA called the project Money For Jam after one woman, who is already helping herself, described her income generating activity as making the difference between only having butter on her toast or being able to afford jam.
Money For Jam passed a landmark a couple of weeks ago when CAPPA convened a co-design workshop with a group of women, some of which are clients of Women’s Housing Limited. The workshop follows on from thorough analysis of what women said to CAPPA during initial interviews, of what the gaps are in current services and what barriers they face.
Through these invaluable contributions by the women CAPPA are now close to defining what the Money For Jam facility will look like and how it will help women increase their financial and emotional wellbeing. Shortly they will be testing the facility before broader roll out will commence, hopefully by the end of the year.
