Every woman has the
right to a
dignified life

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.

Help support women living at Catherine House by making a donation easily and securely through our website.

In 2018, we are fundraising for the expansion of our Emergency Program. This will see the service increase from a 16 bed program to a 20 bed program.

An additional 1,460 nights of safe and secure accomodation for women.

However you choose to donate, we truly thank you for your support.
