Karinya House is a community based organisation.

Each year Karinya House supports over 500 pregnant and parenting women and their babies within our Canberra Region community.  Karinya provides shelter, warmth during those cold Canberra winters, food, clothing, support and advocacy. Homelessness and family violence are critical issues.  50% of the women of Karinya are homeless upon referral.  Over 60% of women have experienced family violence.

As a community based organisation, your investment with us is vital. The community funds 50% of our service.

Karinya House Home For Mothers & Babies Inc is endorsed as a Charity and Deductible Gift Recipient.  All monetary donations greater than $2 are tax deductible.  The form below is for a single donation. If you wish to set up recurring donations we welcome you to  Be a Friend of Karinya.

A night of shelter and residential support costs $500.  A day of outreach services costs $440. A day of midwifery support costs $440. Karinya House provides this support 365 days a year.

On average, to support each Mother and her baby, through a change of life event, costs $3,000.  This is not a significant investment for what can be a most inspiring and enduring return.
