The Sky Foundation has launched a petition today to ensure that local families in crisis continue to be supported.
It's hoped the petition will get the State Government to help the Townsville Women's Centre to find a new building.
The Centre is a safe haven for those facing domestic violence and sexual assault, but the building is dilapidated and has been described as being in a third world state.
The petition's initial target of 200 signatures have already been reached, with hundreds more expected to get on board in the coming hours.
Without sufficient funding, the Centre may be forced to close it's doors.
