Our Special Projects

In addition to our regular programs, GOT YOUR BACK SISTA also get involved in special projects which have substantially improved and supported the lives of many women escaping Domestic Violence. Our aim is to help vulnerable women begin again.

In our projects, we value measurable impact and sustainability for those women in need.

Two of the projects that GOT YOUR BACK SISTA are supporting are described in the following:

Project 2: Respectus Shelter.

Our current project aims to end homelessness of women and children escaping Domestic Violence. Our objective is to convert an old property into a 10 bedroom crisis home in the Newcastle Area. 




Our charity is so proud to have such a wonderful team of volunteers who have come together on Saturdays mornings to work on our project:
