Babies feel the love at Kira House

4 July 2019

Kira House

Kira House is a 24-hour service that supports young women leaving family and domestic violence. Around 30% of the women we support are pregnant or have children.

Youth Manager Dawn McAleenan said Rise offered a unique service.

"We're the only service of this type in Perth who caters for such young women.
In the past two years, we have supported 107 women. Of these, 14 had their own children.
We support the women by equipping them with parenting skills which will help them into the future."

Life skills

As well as parenting skills, all women at Kira House are prepared for their everyday and future goals.

Rise can provide informal counselling, focus on strengths and refer women to other agencies if they need other community services.
