About Us

For 60 years, we’ve been connecting the WA community by empowering vulnerable and disadvantaged people to create meaningful change in their lives. Providing support across three core areas – housing and homelessness, mental health and wellness and family and domestic violence – our team works from 12 sites across Perth, Geraldton and Albany, and directly at our client’s homes, to create opportunities and build a better, more connected community. We also offer free legal advice and representation to people who experience a mental health illness, through the Mental Health Law Centre, which is operated by Ruah as an independent community legal service.


Flourishing communities through active participation and wellbeing of people with complex needs.

Our Commitment to Diversity

We are all better off, as a community, as a society, if we are all connected. At Ruah we believe true connection comes from a place free from judgement and discrimination, where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People are welcomed and treated with respect and their culture is celebrated.

Where everyone regardless of ability, age, culture, gender, race, sexual identity or intersex status are free to be themselves. Free to celebrate our differences.

We are building a workplace where difference is embraced and encouraged – and to do this, we need people on our team who are representative of the clients we work with, who are passionate about change and courageous enough to stand up for what is right.

Everyone is welcome. Everyone belongs.


We are very grateful for your donation.
We could not function without the generosity, commitment and goodwill of the WA community.
