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.

Homelessness can happen to anyone.

It could be your mother, sister, grandmother or friend. It could be you.


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.

As a single mother don't work as a carer in Age Care facilities because this is what happens to us. I'm a strong person but I would come home from work my body would shake from exhaustion. So many people to take care of and all had different physical complaints that puts a lot of pressure on my body. Also, not seeing nice things all day. I think women who have been abused need to find work that is less stressful so that they can manage at home more effectively and heal. When I became ill from the demands I was told by work cover that it was all in my head. Handed an antidepressants tablet and they tried to push me back into it. I have found I have been unemployable since. There is a big problem in this area for women and it is not good at all.
