healing is a personal journey that is strengthened by tapping into resources, interest, strengths, relationships and community networks available to everyone.

Cara House

Cara House offers a safe place for children, adults and families to heal from the impacts of trauma and abuse.

The philosophy of Cara House is embodied in the research and literature of Resilience and Recovery.

It is exemplified in the understanding that healing is a personal journey that is strengthened by tapping into resources, interests, strengths, relationships and community networks available to all people.

Cara House is also a place for children and adults to learn new, respectful and non violent ways of relating to others.

At Cara House, we believe that safety is a basic human right of all children. We therefore operate from a child protection framework where children’s safety is always paramount.
