Camellia House, A safe haven for women and their children

We would like to acknowledge and thank the team and volunteers at Camellia House in Manawatu.

Their annual impact report shows they utilised our community grant for maintenance and smooth running of the house. Camellia House is known for being a safe haven for women and their children in Manawatu, offering temporary accommodation and support services to enable them to be independent. They have directly supported 21 women and 15 children between March 2021 and July 2021. 

During these tough times, mums with children were able to benefit from their stays at Camellia House and were helped with parenting and budgeting courses. They ensured that every child that left Camellia House was enrolled in kindergarten/school and sought ongoing support if required with mental health and addiction services.

The Catalytic Foundation (donation managers for The Tindall Foundation and Workplace donors) is proud to supporting Camellia House and their amazing services for women and children in need in the Manawatu.
