The Killara Foundation assists Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander people to have sustainable employment by providing them with guidance, cultural understanding and housing while they work, or until they are ready to live independently.
We work closely with key partners in the private, public and NFP sectors to promote cultural awareness and diversity and to help close the gap.
Together we offer stability, skills and connection.
We provide privately sourced share housing or help participants source their own accommodation.
We work alongside organisations that value diversity to create jobs for young Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islanders.
Mentors are Aboriginal and employed full-time to provide 24/7 support to program participants.
We work with organisations to teach and promote cultural awareness to their staff.
We help bridge the gap between work and the "real world" to maximise success.
We work with external private and public organisations to facilitate a more holistic support network.
Killara respectfully acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the land on which our office is located, the Bunurong Boon Wurrung and Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung peoples of the Eastern Kulin Nation and pays respect to their Elders past, present and emerging.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples should be aware that this website may contain images of people who have passed away.
