Catherine House relies on the support of the community to ensure we can continue to provide clients with their on-going daily needs. In addition to this there are items that can be donated to Catherine House as the women transition into their new homes after leaving our service.
We are not able to accept donations of second hand clothing and furniture, predominantly due to lack of storage. We do encourage you to donate your items to the Magdalene Centre located at 46 Carrington Street, Adelaide. they can be contacted on 08 8305 9374. Catherine House has a partnership with the centre which enables our clients to access clothing at no charge.
Catherine House gratefully accepts items of toiletries and sanitary items.
Please note that we only accept full size items of toiletries. We are not able to accept hotel samples, mini’s or samples. For a list of these items please CLICK HERE
Due to test and tag regulations we are only able to accept boxed, new electrical items.
Catherine House does not have children residing at our accommodation program and therefore we do not have a need for baby or children clothes, furniture, items or toys.
Please contact our office on 08 8232 2282 if you have any questions regarding the above.
Catherine House does not exit women to homelessness. This mean that women will only leave Catherine House when they have a safe and secure home. (Unless they chose to leave earlier). When moving in to a new home there are always items that women need to help them make a fresh start.
If you would like to support our women as they transition in to their new home, here are some suggestions of new items that are always so gratefully received:
Please Note that all donated items must be NEW. As a general rule if you would not like to receive it yourself please do not donate it.
