Welcome to Pindari 

 

Are You Struggling With Drug Or Alcohol Addiction?

Are There Other Life Dominating Circumstances Having A Negative Impact On Your Life?

 

Welcome to Pindari Restoration House!  We are glad that you have taken the opportunity to make significant changes in your life.  Our program exists to help you find freedom and health from life-dominating circumstances that may be governing your life.

 

Pindari Restoration House is a place for men wholeheartedly committed to change. Here, you will find shelter from many of the temptations and challenges of daily life. We understand that overcoming negative life patterns is challenging and will demand self-discipline, perseverance, commitment, and time.  We aim to help you identify and address negative life patterns and reshape them into new and healthy life habits.  While you are the one who is going to have to do the hard work, we will walk alongside you as you journey towards fullness of life.  We promise to give you a hand up as you take responsibility for your future. 

Our program is far-reaching and intensive and based on Christian principles. Once you have settled in, we identify your harmful assumptions, attitudes and behaviours and help you to reshape them. Program success is also based on time and effort; neither one of these alone will get someone through the program. So we urge you to remain in our program for the recommended 12 months. You can always stay longer if necessary. 

 

If You Are Ready To Commit The Time And Effort, We Know That You Will Find Hope And Restoration At Pindari Restoration House.

The Background

About 10 years ago, Tim deVos (Pindari Restoration House Executive Director) and Alastair Kleyn (Pindari Ministries Chairman) were involved in separate initiatives  that supported troubled men.  In 2009, they realised that they shared a common vision.  Teaming up, they agreed that a longer-term residential program which sought to empower troubled men was required. The aim was to come alongside men to give them a hand-up, rather than a hand-out.

Since research shows that 70% of people involved in programs of 90 days or less relapse within 1 year, Tim and Ali (together with Tim's wife Tonya) decided to establish a place where men would have the time and support to make the complete paradigm shift in their thinking and behaviour required for real change and growth to take place.   

The Property

Pindari Restoration House is located about 30km from the Perth CBD within the City of Armadale in Bedfordale, Western Australia.   The property has 2 houses, a games room and a workshop.  The property is ideally suited for the program's operation.  

Pindari Ministries (Inc.) purchased the property in 2015.  Pindari is grateful to those who made this purchase possible and is privileged to partner with those who share in our vision to provide real restoration to men affected by life dominating circumstances.
