Catherine House relies on the support of the community to ensure our Emergency Accommodation and recovery programs can continue.
Catherine House is not just a roof over a woman’s head, it is so much more. A woman that enters our Emergency Program is provided with a hot meal, toiletries, one on one counselling, support and importantly it is the beginning of identifying solutions for the events in their life that have brought her into her our homelessness service.
Catherine House is the only accommodation and support services for women experiencing homelessness, who are 18 years and older, and unaccompanied by children in South Australia.
Sadly, there is no shortage of demand for our vital services.
