The Lisa Harnum Foundation (LHF) was established in 2014 to initially assist women and their children living in the Hills area, who were experiencing some form of domestic abuse. LHF has since expanded their service in to the Ryde Local Government Area. LHF is a registered not for profit charity that relies on donations to carry out this important work.

Services provided are - case management, information, court support, education, group work and transitional housing. LHF introduced an innovative service in 2017 called the Safe Room. This model offers women the opportunity to meet with the caseworker in a safe and private space. The Safe Room is located within shopping centres where, even if tracked on her phone or car, she is just in a shopping centre, which is a normal activity. LHF has three Safe Rooms, Castle Towers Shopping Centre, Macquarie Shopping Centre and Rouse Hill Town Centre.
