Catherine House School Fundraising and Education Program

 

 

The Catherine House Fundraising and Education Program is a Toolkit will provides primary and secondary schools with ideas to educate students and raise awareness of how homelessness affects our community.

 

 

The toolkit will also provide teachers with fun ideas and suggestions as to how their school can support the work of  Catherine House.

 

The aim of these activities is to allow students to develop empathy for women experiencing homelessness.

These activities are designed to facilitate reflection, and for students to understand that homelessness is real; every woman who experiences homelessness has a story, and each of them are individuals experiencing crisis in their lives.
