Approximately 50 women are sleeping rough each night in Adelaide- Together we can make a difference to their lives.

Catherine House Inc

Catherine House provides supported accommodation services to women experiencing homelessness in South Australia, who are 18 years and older,and unaccompanied by children.

Catherine House Inc was founded in 1988 to address an unmet service need for women experiencing homelessness.

In the subsequent thirty years Catherine House has both grown and refined its model, and is now recognised as Adelaide’s only recovery based service for women experiencing homelessness. We believe that every woman is a woman of potential, with capacity and capability, and the right to the choices that lead to a dignified life.

Our recovery model includes two mental health programs, as well as large number of in reach services from government and private providers, and pro bono partnerships with private providers, ensuring that each woman has the opportunity to link with the services she needs to recover from the issues that brought her into homelessness.

Key to our success is our education services which develop not only practical skills such as literacy and numeracy, job seeking, but also a self-development course that helps women who have experienced trauma to rediscover their voice, learn to make good decisions for themselves, and make plans for their future.

Across the organisation, we accommodate 52 women on a nightly basis.

37 heroes fundraising today.

In 2018 Catherine House celebrates 30 years of supporting women experiencing homelessness in South Australia.

The demand for our accommodation services and recovery programs continue to grow rapidly and we are fundraising to expand our Emergency Program by an additional 4 beds, that is an extra 1,460 nights of womens safety every year!

Our Emergency Program not only provides a safe and secure place for women to sleep but it also provides all meals, access to a GP and psychologist, one on one case support and access to many activities and education opportunities through our Catherine House Women's Centre.
