Christmas at Catherine House



Imagine not having a place to call home?

Now imagine how that would feel at Christmas time?



This is the reality for more than 70 women who will join us on Christmas Day. These will be women who are calling Catherine House home this Christmas or returning to us to as they have no where else to go.


There are many ways you can support the women who will be staying with us this year.

Give the Gift of Choice with a Gift Card


When women are in the position of having limited control over their situation, one of the best gifts we can give them is a gift card. This allows them the choice and control over a purchase they need. They may also use the card to buy a gift for their child, enabling them to participate in the tradition of Gifting.

Gift Cards from Coles Myer, Woolworths, Target, Big W, Kmart and IGA are appreciated.


Gift Cards can be posted to PO Box 6031 Halifax Street, Adelaide or alternatively please contact us for delivery details. 



Client Christmas Gift Bags


At Catherine House we want every woman to know she is supported and cared for. Whether Catherine House is her home on Christmas morning or the place she is sharing her Christmas lunch, she deserves to feel special and know she has the support of those around her at this emotionally challenging time.
