This EOFY, walk alongside women, pregnant or parenting a baby, as they chart a new path for their future.

Karinya House relies on her Friends. As a collective, all who donate to Karinya, build a solid foundation for the delivery of services for women, in our community, who are pregnant or parenting a baby in often extremely complex and challenging circumstances.

Karinya has a core group of constant and faithful supporters. Many who are part of the Karinya Village today we can find on our electronic records (on hand from 2002/03). We know they will also appear on the old paper records in our archives from the 1990s when Margaret O’Donovan and her cohort started planning and fundraising, to open the doors of Karinya House in September 1997.

Over time, we have met other good humans who have joined this amazing foundation of support for Karinya House. We thank each and every one of you, who donate each month, each quarter, each year or when you are able. We also thank the many school, community and social groups who choose to fundraise and donate to Karinya House each year.

We greatly value your understanding and recognition of the services provided by Karinya House for women in our community. Collectively, your financial contribution is significant. As has been described of Karinya, your donation, along with the donations from many Friends of Karinya, ensures we can form the ‘scaffolding’ around a woman, providing full wraparound services, responding to each woman’s unique situation including supports in the areas of safe housing, health, transport and living.

You can donate to this appeal here.

As you make your annual EOFY donation to Karinya House, regardless of whether you are one of our established Village or you are joining our Village of support for the first time, we say thank you! Thank you for choosing the women we walk alongside, of whom many will say, Karinya is their family, their village.
