After escaping domestic violence, Tash moved into a one-bedroom unit thanks to Community Housing Ltd (CHL). GIVIT provided vouchers for Tash to buy a bed, mattress, and fridge to furnish her empty unit.

"She is very appreciative to have a choice... She is forging a new path in her life, a new home, and preparation for an imminent job interview."
