Sustaining Faith, Hope and Charity


CatholicCare’s Houses
to Homes is one of our vital ministries to the community in our Diocese.

Houses to Homes is dedicated to giving hope, help, shelter, and security to poor, 
homeless young mothers and mothers-to-be who have nowhere and nobody else to turn to.

“The help Jenny and the other girls receive gives them a chance to start again

and realise that people are out there to help, and not there to hurt them.

 

Once they’ve gotten past the turmoil and their immediate needs are looked after, they gather themselves,

find their strength, and realise that they are capable of good things.”

 

Louise, Manager of CatholicCare’s Houses to Homes service.
