Youth Off the Streets

Short-term residential accommodation, respite, education, outreach and community support programs for children and young people 12 to 25 years old who are facing challenges of homelessness, drug and alcohol dependency, exclusion from school, neglect and abuse. We support these young people as they work to turn their lives around and overcome immense personal traumas such as neglect and physical, psychological and emotional abuse. Our 35 services include crisis accommodation, alcohol and other drug services, counselling, accredited high schools, outreach, residential programs and a mentoring program. “THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A BAD KID, ONLY BAD CIRCUMSTANCES” – Father Chris Riley, CEO and Founder 1800 06 22 88
