It doesn’t matter why you need support. We have young people with us who need a safe place to stay because of family breakdown and violence. Young people living on their own who are stressed about how to pay their bills and keep their accommodation. Young people who still live at home but are experiencing their own personal struggles and aren’t getting the type of support they want and need.
Whatever your struggle is, you don’t have to go it alone. All that matters is that you get assistance.
Which is exactly why we’re here.

Need a place
If you need an emergency bed for the night or support to stay where you’re already living, we can do that.
After advice or guidance? We’re great talkers and even better listeners.
Or perhaps you’re desperate for a shower, meal and internet? We’re all over it.
We’re happy to offer “walk in” support – don’t feel you need to make an appointment, just come straight on over.
If you need a bed, our accommodation includes:
Emergency accommodation (‘I don’t have anywhere to sleep tonight’)’:
Transitional Accommodation (‘I’m ready to live on my own but not sure where to start’):
Tenancy Support (‘I’m struggling to keep my tenancy or find a new place to live):
Involved in the legal system? Do you need court support, legal advice or help to pay off fines?
We can advocate on your behalf and hook you up with the people best placed to help.
When it’s possible and safe to do so, we’ll provide the support you need to stay with your family.
We do this in different ways. Sometimes it might include meetings with you and your parents (or carer) to work through a way for you to stay together (this is also called ‘mediation’).
Other times it might be by providing extra support for your family to deal with the problems that are impacting your life at home. This is done via our Homeless Youth Assistance Program, which also provides emergency 24/7 crisis accommodation.
Partnering with Wesley Mission, we work with young families. If you’re having problems that impact on your ability to care for your kids, we can help via the Brighter Futures Program.
We walk alongside you to help you create a safe, healthy and enjoyable home environment. You’ll also receive parenting tools and opportunities for supportive social interactions.
Sometimes life throws us curveballs, we lose our way, or we’re not sure where to go next. It happens to us all. Whether we’re at home or not, we all face our own personal challenges.
We’ll support young people between 12 and 25 and who are living in the Penrith, Hawkesbury and Blue Mountains regions to:
