Kiah Hostel was a residential facility for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children in care, which opened in Norman Park in around 1978. It was operated by the Aboriginal and Islanders' Catholic Council. In 2000 it moved to a new location in Wooloowin. The Hostel was defunded in around 2003, while it was under the control of Kummara Assoc. Inc. in West End.

Details

From 2003, the Kiah name continued as a service providing care for Indigenous patients and their escorts from rural and remote communities attending Brisbane hospitals. This service was run by Kummara until November 2004, then it was taken over by Mayem Mudh Association Inc. Kiah moved to 27 Allen Street, Hamilton in January 2005, and the service was operating there in 2013.
