We continue to take important precautions to keep our residents, volunteers, and staff, safe.

Carty House in the News!

May 2020

Although this interview is from May 2020, it truly represents how Carty House residents feel about the support they continue to receive.

CBC was interested in highlighting how lesser-known populations were dealing with the pandemic, so they reached out to us. In the midst of the challenges we were facing, we thought that it was important to share how the community was rallying around our female refugees. Our supporters continue to give so generously! It’s an uplifting story in these challenging times!
