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 48 women experiencing homelessness. This figure will increase to 52 by Christmas 2018.
Help support women who will be staying at Catherine House this Christmas by making a donation easily and securely through our website.
This year, more than 70 women who are currently staying with us or are previous clients will join us for Christmas lunch as they have nowhere else to go.
However you choose to donate, we truly thank you for your support.
