What do we do?
On any given night, nearly 500 young people in Canberra are homeless. Some “couch-surf” with friends, others face a night on the streets or hidden away in the bushlands. No young person should feel like they have nowhere to go.
YouthCARE Canberra actively provides outreach services to young people (12 to 25 years) at risk, in an effort to help those facing homelessness and violence.
We offer after hours support and a non-judgmental approach to helping those in need.
We go out into the community and engage with young people who cannot, or will not, access services, working with them over time to re-connect them to mainstream society.
