A home for people living with a life-limiting illness.

Not-for-profit. For Geelong.

How you can help

Anam Cara House Geelong wouldn't exist without the generous support from volunteers and donations.

We are always looking for compassionate people within our community who want to make a difference, whether that be through their time or financial contribution.

The new Anam Cara House Geelong Is Coming Soon

A brand new state-of-the-art home for people living with a life-limiting illness.

Due to the growing demand, we’ve outgrown our 4-bedroom facility. Stage 1 of our brand new world-class home is due for completion in 2022 at Deakin University in Waurn Ponds.
