Cyrenian House would like to Acknowledge National Sorry Day.
We are committed to ensuring our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander heritage, knowledge and cultures are recognised by our community, and embedded in the work that we do.
Today we ask you all to take moment to reflect, recognise and pay tribute to the members of the Stolen Generations.
On 26 May 1997, the ‘Bringing Them Home’ report was tabled in Federal Parliament, two years after a national inquiry into the forced removal of Indigenous children was ordered.
National Sorry Day is a day to acknowledge the strength of Stolen Generation Survivors and reflect on how Australians can all play a part in the healing process for the people and the nation. While this date Carrie’s great significance for the Stolen Generations and other Aboriginal and Torres Islander peoples, it is also commemorated by Australians right around the country. ...

Cyrenian House is pleased to announce that as of 19 May 2022, we have taken over operation of the services previously provided by Esther Foundation Inc.
Over recent weeks Cyrenian House has been working with the Department of Communities, and the Administrator of Esther Foundation Inc, to find a solution for the continued care of the remaining residents of the Esther Foundation facilities in and near Kalamunda.
In the immediate short term, Cyrenian House will be providing continuity of care for the existing residents, enabling them to complete their stay at the service. Additionally, Cyrenian House will transition to providing a new program operating from the same facilities over the coming months. Both the continuation of existing services and the transition to a new program are being funded by the Department of Communities.
Cyrenian House would like to thank the Minister for Community Services, the Hon Simone McGurk, and the Department of Communities for funding this new service. This has been a great example of the WA Government and the not-for-profit sector quickly coming together to find a good solution for the women currently in this service and into the future, for other young women who will use the new service, we will now work to create.
As always, we encourage anyone struggling with their own alcohol and other drug problems, or those being experienced by a loved one, to contact us on 9328 9200 to discuss what services we can offer. ... See MoreSee Less

Wow such good news. Congratulations CH. 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼
Such a great community 👏 they help so many people
I'd be lying if I said I wasn't worried about cyrinian house also, I was a resident there for 7 weeks and was kicked out because of "my attitude". It's like come on that's why I'm there to get help🙄 I guess they couldn't handle me. I hope the voting circle to determine who stays is scrapped because that was wrong on so many levels, but that's just my opinion 😬
Fantastic news! Cyrenian are so amazing
Fantastic news, congratulations - well deserved. 🥰
Oh wow! That’s incredible! Well done Cyrenian House and Carol Peasley 👍👍
