Karinya Young Women's Shelter


Karinya Young Women’s Shelter is an organisation that provides short term crisis accommodation to young women aged 13 to 20 years old. It was originally established in Launceston in 1979 on a feminist-based collective model. In 2020 Karinya can provide crisis accommodation for up to six young women at a time, and also runs a separate program for young pregnant women and parents aged 15 to 19 years old.
