Last week Haven Home Safe launched its Reflect RAP across all our offices on the lands of the Wamba Wamba, Latji Latji, Tatti Tatti, Waddi Waddi and Barapa Barapa People in Swan Hill, the Dja Dja Wurrung People in Bendigo, the Wadawurrung People in Geelong, the Wurundjeri People in Preston and the Latji Latji and Ngintait People in Mildura.

The events were moving as we heard from First Nations peoples including Aunty Joy Wandin Murphy, Aunty Stephanie Charles, Aunty Janine Wilson, Peta Hudson, Trudy Bell and Nikki McKenzie, who Welcomed us to Country and shared their inspirational stories of resilience.

As a housing and homelessness support organisation we know first-hand that more needs to be done to support housing for First Nations peoples. Increasing economic equity and self-determination is particularly critical to reducing the severe housing crisis First Nations Victorians face.

Through our Reflect RAP we will continue to build and foster relationships with First Nations communities and organisations and strive to address these inequities, whilst providing a culturally safe and welcoming environment.
