    Tour of Catherine House: 2nd April 2024

    “Catherine House is South Australia’s only homelessness and recovery service for women. The aim at Catherine House is to end homelessness for every woman who walks through the doors.”

    This amazing place offers more than a bed and a meal. Women who enter are treated with respect and empathy. The staff are very caring and make the women feel at home and safe. They provide many different services:

    • Health Services
    • Counselling services
    • Mental Health and NDIS support
    • Financial and legal advice
    • Personal development
    • Education and employment.

    We had three staff members at Catherine talk about the services they provide and how over time they see the women grow in confidence and feel ready to move forward.

    We were fortunate to hear from two women who have been in Catherine House and the benefits they gained. Both are now working and happy in their life.

    The commitment and dedication of the staff at Catherine House was truly incredible. They invest time and support to the often-traumatised women. Their reward is to see the women gain their self-respect and gain life skills to enable them to move back into the work force and accommodation.

    Catherine House is a very tranquil place to be in. There are gardens and an atmosphere helpful for healing.

    Overall, our experience was truly heart-warming and could see how Catherine House is essential to help women in crisis.

    I would like to thank the staff of Catherine House for helping us see the reason why Catherine House exists. Unfortunately due to the high cost of living more woment are experiencing homelessness and there is a wait list for Catherine House.

    I would like to thank the 2 women who bravely spoke about their lives before entering Catherine House and how their lives have now changed.

    We all felt very honoured to be part of this tour and hope many more people can have the same opportunity.
