In its fourteenth year of operation Karinya House has supported thousands of pregnant and parenting women in crisis throughout the ACT and surrounding region by providing supported accommodation, transitional housing and outreach services. Karinya House operates on a 24 hour a day, 7 days a week basis.
In the financial year ended 30 June 2011, Karinya supported 38 residential clients and 37 babies. A further 235 clients and their families were provided with outreach support. It is worth noting that 64% of these women were aged 25 years and younger and 63% were homeless when referred to Karinya House.
Karinya is the only residential and outreach service specifically for pregnant women and women with young babies in the Canberra region and demand for our services continues to expand. In the last financial year Karinya was unable to accommodate 316 clients. These women were offered appropriate information, referral or outreach service support.
For the financial year ended 30 June 2011, Karinya received 60% government funding (48% recurrent). The remaining 40% of total revenue was provided primarily through donations and fundraising, which is critical to the continuation of this vital service.
