High tea at foun­da­tion

Kalamunda Reporter - - Front Page -

THE Es­ther Foun­da­tion will hold its big­gest an­nual event at the his­toric Mid­land Town Hall this month.

The spring high tea will be on Oc­to­ber 14, when guests can en­joy high tea del­i­ca­cies while hear­ing sto­ries about lives changed, bid on auc­tion items and watch per­for­mances.

The foun­da­tion fa­cil­i­tates group ther­apy for is­sues and tasks such as sub­stance abuse, fam­ily re­la­tion­ships, anger man­age­ment, com­mu­ni­ca­tion, high risk be­hav­iours, bud­get­ing and self es­teem.

Event co-or­di­na­tor An­nette Rus­sell said the foun­da­tion had been pro­vid­ing its ser­vices, which in­clude men­tor­ing and coun­selling, for more than 20 years.

“(It) con­tin­ues to break the mould against stig­mas, res­o­lute opin­ions and statis­tics that state that change can­not hap­pen, and that only a bleak fu­ture is avail­able to such a past and that there has surely been too much chem­i­cal dam­age through drug abuse to ever war­rant rea­son­able heal­ing,” she said.

“The young women who work hard through the Es­ther Foun­da­tion pro­gram are tes­ti­mony to the po­ten­tial that is avail­able to them through their com­mit­ment.

“The monies raised from this spe­cial oc­ca­sion will fund the health, de­vel­op­ment and lead­er­ship pro­grams of­fered at Es­ther.”
