Kira House is a safe and spacious 24-hour crisis house for young women aged between 14 and 18 years, who may have accompanying children, but who are leaving a violent family or domestic situation.
In 2015, the house was in need of freshening up and the Rise Youth team planned for a transformation, set to turn Kira House into a more welcoming and homely environment.
With the help of BHP Billiton, the whole house was painted and furniture assembled. It wasn’t only their valuable time that was donated to the project. BHP and staff raised money through their staff donation program to fund the entire project. Then even arranged a special donation of paint from Taubmans for the project which enabled more funds to be spent on new furniture for the home.
The day was full of laughter as everyone worked together to achieve a better place for the young women we support and their children to stay.
We are extremely grateful to the BHP team for their generosity, enthusiasm and energy towards the project.
Lana House is a transitional safe house for young women who have experienced emotional and traumatic crisis after leaving a domestic or violent family situation. We acquired the property in 2014 and it was then that international organisation, INPEX approached us. People from their Perth office were prepared to donate their time and talent to make a stunning home of Lana House.
A young person’s rite of passage is the independence they receive from having a driver’s licence. For many of us, this may be easy but for some it is not, and yet the tangible and intangible benefits that come to the young person as a result of receiving their licence can be huge.
