Carrying On the Dream, In His Memory
Kyle was born 15th January 1987 in Mandurah. He returned to Broome with his family when only a few months old. He spent the winter months on Cable Beach in nappies or nothing.
It was a life style he grew up with and at the young age of two could windsurf and surf. As the years went on he continually challenged himself to improve and master skills in all aspects of his life. There was no one who could catch him at running or surf life saving and at the age of ten was Broome Surf Club Junior Ironman. Not only did he take out his age group, but he beat a number of older kids as well.
His real love, however, was fishing and following in his brother Troy's footsteps, he spent his last years catching some of the best fish around Broome. In March of 1997 he was diagnosed with leukaemia and spent 16 months fighting the disease only to lose the battle on the 23rd July 1998.

Yorgum has taken on the principals of trauma-informed and is working towards being a trauma informed service.
The name is an expression of the life-sustaining image of the living tree. The deep roots, rising sap, branches reaching to the sky, the shelter given and the home provided to the many forms of life-insects, reptiles, birds and other animals. It is a symbol of connectedness and inter-dependence in the diversity of living beings. This image conveys the philosophy of the Yorgum staff and the way in which they work.
The lack of consistent, supportive and loving relationships and the absence of positive life enhancing values are like the soil in which the tree grows. A tree is an organic system. If the whole system is diseased, you can’t just treat one of the roots and expect the rest of the tree to be healthy. You must treat the whole tree as well as the soil within which it grows.
