Estia Foundation

The Estia Foundation cares for people with special needs in Sydney. Estia provides short term overnight accommodation and permanent group-home accommodation for young adults with intellectual and physical disabilities. Estia is a registered provider with the NDIS and provides services to NDIS participants.

Estia was originally a continuation of a weekend day-program organised by parents who had a child with an intellectual and physical disability.

After much research and in consultation with parents and carers of those with intellectual and physical disabilities, the consensus was that a centre-based respite facility was needed... and Estia was established.

The objective of respite is to provide a safehaven where the carers of people with disabilities are able to leave their child for a few days overnight in a 'home away from home' environment.

This along with the generosity from their community enabled Elpida House in Roselands to open on October 22, 2000. In 2004, a substantial contribution made by a family in Sydney made possible the establishment of Estia's first supported group home facility in North Ryde.

Lixouri House is now the permanent residence of four adults with intellectual disabilities.
