Be a friend of Karinya

Welcome to Friends of Karinya! BAFBADGE

We invite you to share our purpose of supporting women who are pregnant or early parenting in our community. Support the women and babies living in peace and safety at Karinya House. Support the women we walk alongside who live in their homes in our Canberra Community.

You have made a difference. You can continue to be the difference.  Through your recurring donation, you walk alongside women in our community, who are pregnant or early parenting.  Women who inspire and persevere moving beyond the impacts of structural inequalities trauma (past or current).

Stay with or join our village in 2019 as a Friend of Karinya. With us, walk alongside and recognise around 200 women in our region during 2019.

Each year, Karinya House walks with over 200 women who are pregnant or early parenting, and their babies and families, from within our Canberra Region community. With you, we can be the partner, the mother, the family, the sister, the brother who walks with a woman in crisis. Be a Friend and walk with us. Be the Village with us.

We welcome you to Be A Friend.

Karinya House Home For Mothers & Babies Inc is endorsed as a Charity and Deductible Gift Recipient and is a registered charity with the Australian Charities and Not-for-Profits Commission..  All monetary donations greater than $2 are tax deductible.  As a community based organisation, your investment and partnership with us is vital. Our community of Friends, Corporate and Community Partners, fund almost 50% of our service costs each year.  Our service costs  are $1.7m per annum.

For as little as $5 per week, $25 per month…  you can be the difference, ensuring the sustainability of services to women in our region, who are pregnant or early parenting.

A night of shelter and residential support costs $500. A day of outreach services costs $440. A day of midwifery support costs $440.
