About Peter Lyndon-James
Peter ’s vision is to bring holistic recovery to the lives of men, providing a long-term safe community for men pursuing a life free from addiction. Peter established the first Shalom House in the Swan Valley in 2012. He drew inspiration from his own life experience, recovering from a broken family and associated trauma.A ward of the State from age nine, Peter spent most of his childhood locked up or living on the streets. Growing up in a dysfunctional family unit, he felt unwanted, unloved and abandoned. At the age of 9 he was given a choice – “live with your Dad, or go to Longmore Children’s Home”.
Because of the hurt he experienced he made the choice and went to lock up. This was Peter’s first taste of a life behind bars and the beginning of a life that descended into crime and addiction.
