CatholicCare is a large multidisciplinary not-for-profit agency operating in the Canberra and surrounding Southern NSW region. Our communities include; Lake Cargelligo to the west, to Eden in the south, across the Snowy Mountains, Canberra and up to Goulburn. We are proud of our history stemming from a small volunteer base in the 1950’s to the agency that we are today. In July of 2009 we officially changed our name from Centacare to CatholicCare Canberra & Goulburn. CatholicCare runs approximately 50 programs and services throughout Canberra, and the surrounding Southern NSW Regions. We are especially dedicated to increasing our services into the regional communities within our Archdiocese. Our programs are mostly Government funded but every little bit helps us to help those in need. Donations are always welcome. Helping people involves valuing, strengthening, assisting, supporting and caring for people who are less advantaged in our community. This is what CatholicCare does. We have programs which operate under the following service areas Youth, Mental Health, Homelessness and Family Support Programs, Disability & Aged Care, Counselling, Regional & Family Services, Comorbidity & Housing Do I have to be Catholic to use any of the programs or services? The answer is No. CatholicCare provides services to all members of our community. We ensure equitable access to all individuals using our service.
