Moving On Packs
Catherine House does not exit women into homelessness. This means that women will only leave Catherine House when they have a safe and secure home to go to. ( Unless they choose to leave earlier).
When moving in to a new home there are always items that women need to help get them started once again. 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:
