How do we support young people?

We work with young people, their families and our community partners to address the causes of youth homelessness.
We respond early to young people at risk to prevent homelessness.
We work closely with young people to assist them to identify their needs and achieve their accommodation and personal goals .
Connecting Home explores solutions with young people to:

  • Maintain their current accommodation
  • Access transitional and medium-term accommodation
  • Access and maintain long-term housing in the public and private rental markets.
