Impact for Women Inc

Kathy founded Impact for Women Inc by accident. A simple one-off activity has grown into a significant charity with no paid staff and no paid premises making massive differences to women and children fleeing traumatic family situations.
The one-off activity involved 12 friends packing 100 small gift boxes. Nearly 14 years later, more than 1000 volunteers pack some 4000 Bags of Love each year, play Santa to thousands of children, provide free childcare at the Moorabbin Magistrates’s Court, repair and refurbish Safe Houses and more. A conservative estimate of these gifts - all brand new - and services nears $4million.
