Out of Peter’s painful experiences, came a strong desire to help others who were going through similar trauma.

Peter set out to help men, who required intensive attention and support to overcome deeply entrenched behaviours and addictions that made their lives unmanageable. Before long, it became clear that a live-in restoration program was required to restore these damaged lives.

The first Shalom House

In 2012, Peter opened a safe house, where men with life-controlling issues could voluntarily take up residence to be guided towards a comprehensive restoration of their lives by someone who truly understands what they are going through. It started with one resident and five years later, rose to up to over 80 residents living across eight houses under the ‘Shalom House’ banner.

Many of the man in the Shalom House program are married and have children. Our couples program includes both partners residing at Shalom House, including their children, to bring restoration not only to the individual and the relationship, but to the whole family unit. Shalom Houses are opened according to the need and there are no waiting lists.


This has become a residential facility for men and families whose lives have been overtaken by life controlling issues such as alcohol and drug addiction. Men and families who need to build long term changes into their lives, in order to emerge as functioning members of society and leave the life controlling issues well and truly in their past. For this purpose, Shalom House offers a live-in facility located in the scenic Swan Valley of Western Australia. Men and families who meet the criteria and who are ready to embrace serious change in their lives, can commit to the program for a 12 month period to undergo a restoration process in the safety of a disciplined and controlled environment.
