Securing some $5 million from the WA State Government, his pursuit of a dream & personal resolve to help men who by chance and or misfortune embark on life changing decisions. Resulting often in personal and family devastation to "hit a wall" and then recover.

How, who, when and where do they get help?

Inspiration and hope is provided to these men through the efforts of Peter and his team at Shalom House.

Peter became one of the 2017 Telstra Business Award winners.

He will present a short video and multiple stories on the insidious and pervasive effect meth amphetamines and other drugs are having on our community and why our city and our people are regarded as a soft target's for drug use and abuse.
