Homelessness Week

Did you know that in Australia more than 116,000 people are homeless?

Did you know that 44% of the homeless population are women?

Did you know that women over 50 are the fastest growing demographic of people experiencing homelessness?




August 4th-10th is Homelessness Week in Australia. This is an opportunity to raise awareness for this increasingly growing problem throughout Australia.


This year’s theme is “Housing ends homelessness”. Providing housing solutions for women experiencing homelessness is our core focus at Catherine House. In addition to this we offer a range of further support including education and employment pathways to ensure women can end their cycle of homelessness for good.


We would love you to help raise awareness for women experiencing homelessness and the work of Catherine House.


We are looking for workplaces to get involved by holding a workplace fundraiser during the week beginning August 4th. This could include or be –


  • Morning Tea

  • Shared Lunch
  • Any other idea that brings your team together!
