Karinya House for Mothers and Babies

Sunday 28th Feb

Karinya House for Mothers and Babies

Every woman who is pregnant or has a baby should be surrounded with the supports she needs. However, not every woman has shelter, stability or support. Some may be at risk of violence, experience homelessness or be completely isolated.

As a 24 hour, seven day a week service, Karinya House is the only service specifically for pregnant and parenting women in the Canberra region, offering individual case management services which may include residential and/or outreach based support services.

Karinya House recognises and acknowledges the unique lived experiences of women as they navigate building a future for themselves. Our practice framework 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.

By providing a framework of care that encompasses the whole person, practitioners walk alongside women as they develop their capacity to represent themselves and to make informed choices about their own lives. The Karinya House Practice Framework is founded within the principals of trauma informed care and practice. Individual casework management and flexibility in service provision are paramount at Karinya House.
