About Us

The word Estia means hearth or warmth.

The Estia Foundation is a Christian organisation - an initiative of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia. Our President and Patron is His Eminence Archbishop Stylianos, Primate of the Greek Orthodox Church in Australia.

The Estia Foundation's CEO is Father Angelo Alifierakis, who is responsible for all of Estia's operations and services.

The Estia Foundation is a non-profit organisation that relies on donations and State Government funding to provide its valuable services to the community.

Staff and volunteers of Estia are dedicated to helping young adults who have an intellectual and/or physical disability to help them reach their full potential, to integrate and be a valued member of society and to participate in everyday activities that they would otherwise not have been able to do. These young adults are people of many talents - many abilities and are not to be underestimated by any means. We at Estia are proud to be involved in the awakening and the nurturing of these hidden talents.
