We again extend our gratitude to the Board of the James N Kirby Foundation who recently approved our submission for a 2020 COVID-19 Emergency Grant of $25,000.00.

This grant to support the project – Responding to Uncertainty – People Rich Support and recognises the importance of the key stone of Karinya’s Practice Framework. At a recent strategic planning day, the premise of our application being to establish onsite and inhouse a specialist mental health support practitioner was highlighted as a significant gap, arising more patently during 2020.

To have the support to launch this pilot project now, is so valued.

The constant partnership of the James N Kirby Foundation has been so critical to many capacity building projects at Karinya House. We thank them for investing in the lives of women with respect and recognition.
