About Carinity

Carinity is a leading not-for-profit, Christian based care organisation that has been changing lives of people in need – helping individuals and families reach their full potential to full potential to live enriched lives.

Since 1949 Carinity, formerly Queensland Baptist Care, has been making a real difference to people through comprehensive and integrated community services. This includes providing affordable and integrated retirement communities, care to the aged and frail, shelters for homeless youth, help for families and young people experiencing difficult times, support for people with disability, chaplaincy and alternative education for teenagers who struggle in traditional schools.

We believe in building communities where you feel at home and secure.

At Carinity we believe in building communities where you feel at home and secure – a place where you are valued, included, where your voice is heard and you are respected.

 

 

Derived from the words “care” and “affinity”, our name represents our purpose, always striving to create experiences where you feel a sense of belonging.

A ministry of Queensland Baptists, and a member of Baptist Care Australia, Carinity is supported in our mission to make a difference.

Thought of the day

Feeling Alone?

God seldom says, “I’ll fix it”, to his followers. Far more often he said, “I will be with you”. To many of His famous followers – Abraham, Moses, Joshua, David … etc., God promised his presence, not problem-free lives. David caught it perfectly, “Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me” (Psalm 23:4). Jesus promised his followers, “… I am with you always …” (Matthew 28:20). And the Bible’s picture of the new heaven and earth says, “Now the dwelling of God is with humankind and He will live with them.” Revelation 21:3. Feeling alone? God promises, “I am with you”.
