SEED Retail Hub

Just Breath is our retail store in the Museum  Villages Old Station masters ticket office in Dempster Street, Esperance.  The goods in this store are all created by individuals on their own mental health journey.  Each item has a story connected to its creator and their creation. The creator gets to heal through their journey while creating a sustainable income for themselves.  The saying "find something you love to do and then get someone to pay you to do it" is truly an example of Passion meeting purpose.

Our Dream Future Project

We have a dream to set up a residential facility for young men.  An alternative path to the judicial system.  A place where our young boys can work towards a  path of self sustainability.  A path that does not include reliance on any government system.  A path where they can become valuable members of society and most importantly they feel valued themselves.

 

We are looking for acreage property - a place outside of town with space for kids to unplug.  A place where they can learn valuable life skills while breathing fresh air in a safe environment. A place where we can comfortable house up to 20 young men.  

We want to take our Boys2Men program and start with the most basic of needs - a safe place to stay and then work from there.
