Join us as we celebrate 23 Years of Services for Women in the Canberra Region. We thank every Woman who has shared part of their inspiring journey with us.
Every woman who is pregnant or has a new baby, should be surrounded with the support she needs. One of the main supports is time. Karinya House invests time to support each individual woman we walk alongside. At Karinya House we know that if we invest early and work with a family experiencing structural inequalities over the long term, the lives of women and children can be profoundly impacted, and life trajectories changed.
With your support, we are privileged to journey with women and children in a very profound way and personally share part of their lives for a while. Your donations directly support the time and presence of caseworkers and health professionals. The full funding available through this appeal, being $100,000 of matched donations, will fully support 10 women during the period we walk alongside with them. On average a support period is 100 days. Your donation can help us to provide 1,000 days of support at a cost of $100 per day.
Intensive space and time, focused on being with an individual for the long term, in whatever way they need, to build a brighter future. The cost of providing an individual woman a tailored, comprehensive continuum of care, is in the human relationships and connections.
Join with us on this journey. Your donation can give the gift of time, space, hope and new horizons. The donation link is coming soon so watch this space.

Words from a woman about to move from Karinya in recent months..
“I had a cuppa with a woman tonight who is about to move out and thought this was worth sharing! She stated that when she is at Karinya she feels like she can breathe. She said there is a lot of stress in her life at the moment, but when she is at Karinya she knows her children are safe and she feels like she has time to think about little things. She is hoping that her new home will eventually have this feeling.”
