Mother's Day is often a time of great joy, celebration and thanksgiving, and also a time of sadness, loss and the celebration of resilience in the face of adversity. So this year ladies, put your cycle legs into gear, and get out and challenge yourself, enjoy the beauty of the our cycle tracks and along the way support women in our community who are impacted by the happenstance of life.
Karinya House relies on direct donations from the community – individuals, families, businesses and corporate – for almost 50% of their annual operating income. Their fund raising target for 2016/2017 is $700,000. The ACT Government provide the remaining annual funding support. Every donation does make a difference and ensures that women receive individually tailored casework support through, what is, a life changing event. Karinya House provides supported accommodation, transitional housing and outreach services.
