Lou’s Place

Lou's Place
Lou’s Place is Sydney’s only community-based day-time refugee for women and provides free meals, drop-in services including legal and medical aid, individual case management and therapeutic group work programs. Lou’s Place receives no government funding and relies on the community, donors and corporate partners to open its doors to those women facing issues of homelessness, domestic violence, mental health or addiction.

The Ottomin Foundation has been privileged to be involved since 2013. Over the years, the Foundation has provided annual and recurrent funding for its general operations and its support programs. In 2021, the Ottomin Foundation contributed $250,000 to the capital purchase and fit-out of the new premises in Redfern and more recently has provided funding for other capital improvements including a new roof.

Complementing the Foundation’s financial support, since 2016, Charity Committee member, Jennie Kovacs has also been a director of the Marmalade Foundation which oversees the funding and operations of Lou’s Place.
