Bed boost for women’s crisis accommodation service Catherine House
The State Government is helping Catherine House expand their crisis bed accommodation available to women experiencing homelessness.
Management of a two-bedroom cottage has been handed over to the service, resulting in an additional two crisis beds in the system. This means an extra 730 nights of safety for women experiencing homelessness, every year.
Each night, Catherine House can now offer accommodation to 54 women, up from 52, who might otherwise be homeless or remain trapped in a domestic or family violence situation.
Catherine House is a safe space where women can start their recovery journey and access assistance to help them plan for the future. Catherine House offers services for women aged over 18 unaccompanied by children at several undisclosed locations in the Adelaide CBD. Services include safe accommodation and assistance to help them plan for their future and rebuild their lives.
