Zena Women's Services (ZWS) Inc is based in the Geelong area and provides information and support to women and their dependent children, who have experienced domestic/family violence. The service also provides access to high security refuge accommodation to women assessed as being at high risk of further harm.
ZWS has been delivering domestic violence support services for over 25 years. It was originally known as Morgana Women's Group but changed its name to Zena when it amalgamated with Barwon Domestic Violence Outreach Service.
The name ‘Zena’ was chosen at the time of amalgamation from one of the many marginalised languages spoken in Australia and means ‘women’. The merger created a new identity and combined the resources and practice wisdom of both programs. Zena, like its predecessor organisations, operated as a collective until 2008. While ZWS changed its governance structure, its focus and practice base remained firmly planted in feminist ideology.
Zena is run by women solely for women and their children who have experienced, are experiencing or escaping domestic/family violence. Our focus remains on the rights of women and children to live free and safe from violence and abuse.
