Member Profile - Catherine House

Imagine not having a bed to sleep in each night or a place to call home?

This is the reality faced by more than 5,000 South Australians on any given night, with a significant increase in women on the streets.

Adelaide’s Catherine House offers accommodation and support for women who find themselves homeless - often the result of a domestic violence relationship, mental illness, separation, job loss or trauma.

Demand for the Adelaide women’s shelter is in overdrive this winter with dozens waiting for a bed every night.

Catherine House is celebrating 30 years of supporting women out of homelessness at a fundraising gala dinner tomorrow night – and is appealing for the business community’s help to expand its emergency accommodation. You can help by bidding on their online auction, available here

To find out more about this essential social service, watch our interview with Jaylee Cooper, Catherine House’s Fundraising and Events Manager here:
 

You can also support Catherine House and the Hutt Centre at an upcoming breakfast event on Tuesday 16 October at the Hilton Adelaide, hosted by the Australia Day Council of South Australia.

In Conversation with change makers: Supporting Catherine House and the Hutt St Centre is a fundraiser that aims to raise funds for two of South Australia’s inspirational organisations addressing homelessness and domestic violence.
