About Us

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.

Karinya House walks with women in Canberra and the surrounding Region providing safety, shelter and a positive support network. A local, not for profit organisation, the Karinya House funding framework is a true cooperative of individuals, families, community groups, corporates, philanthropic and government funding partners. This cooperative approach to funding is a tangible expression of positive recognition of women in our community, who are pregnant or parenting. Your support and partnership with us is welcome.

Acknowledgement of Country

Karinya House recognises the rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to own and control their cultures and pay our respect to these rights.  Karinya House acknowledges, respects and seeks to learn from the diversity of Indigenous cultures Indigenous world views, lifestyles and customary laws.

We extend our respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples who for thousands of years have preserved the cultures and practices of their communities on country.

This land was never surrendered, and we acknowledge that it always was and will continue to always be Aboriginal land.
