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.

End of financial year appeal – donate before june 30, 2017
Every year in June we receive our most significant level of financial support, as people process their financial year donations prior to the close of the tax year. We hope this trend continues this year as the cold weather closes in. At this stage (nearing the end of May), we are about $248,000 short of our target.
We thank all of you who have supported us in this financial year to date by being a Friend of Karinya, making a donation or in any other way. If you are yet to donate for the current financial year, now is the time to do so. All monetary donations greater than $2 are tax deductible.
