At Catherine House, we offer accommodation and support services for women experiencing homelessness, who are 18 years and older, and unaccompanied by children.

 

All of our programs and services are recovery-oriented. We not only deal with the immediate issues that have led a client to a period of homelessness, we also work with our clients to plan for a future that helps her sustain her housing and build a life that is meaningful and purposeful for her and her family.

 

Every night of the year we accommodate 52 women experiencing homelessness.

Every year hundreds of women find themselves homeless in South Australia.

 

Our focus at Catherine House is to not only provide a safe place of accommodation but ensure each woman has a chance to recover from what has led her into homelessness. For many women, this could be years of abuse, trauma or living with mental health issues.

Whatever the reason, recovery is always possible.

 

Please support Catherine House and every woman we support by making a tax deductible donation or fundraising for our organisation.

 

However you choose to support us, we are truly thankful for your support.

Thank you to each and every one of our supporters who support women staying at Catherine House by fundraising or making a donation towards their recovery.
It means more than we can ever put into words 💜

Where are you ?

Can they be soft drink bottles? I have a heap of them. I’m not sure how many of them have lids though. I believe they can be bought though. I’m in RosewAter.

Ask On the runs 😉!

When women come to Catherine House they often talk about it being one of the most challenging times of their lives.
They are in crisis and they are homeless.
Their challenges continue as they not only have to adjust to a new environment but are faced with further challenges to make a positive change in their lives.

It is for this reason and the inspiration we receive from our clients (everyday!) that we have created #challengeforchange

You can show your support to women staying at Catherine House by challenging yourself to make a change for women experiencing homeless.

Funds raised from #challengeforchange will directly support women in their journey to recovery- to changing their lives 💜
