About Us

Karinya House recognises and acknowledges the unique lived experiences of women as they navigate building a future for themselves. The frame that we work from is focused on developing a sense of hope and belonging, to effect lasting positive change in the lives of the women in contact with Karinya House.

Our service is people intense, and the practice framework is based on individual case management particular to the needs of each woman we walk alongside. As our casework and health professional team are primarily all part-time, each woman is assigned two caseworkers and one health professional as their support team. This ensures continuity of care throughout the support period. Full casework management services are the basis for all services to women either in an outreach and/or residential capacity throughout their support period.

How your donation will help

Every woman who is pregnant or parenting should be surrounded with the support she needs. However, not every woman has safety, shelter, or a positive support network.  Through your donation, you walk alongside women in our community with us. You are part of their village.
