Help us End Youth Homelessness!

Every night Tasmanian children are forced to face the cold, harsh night alone because they do not have a roof over their heads.

Between the 2006 and 2021 censuses, child and youth homelessness in Tasmania increased by 42.6 per cent, by far the biggest increase in the country.

This shameful problem is not hopeless – it can be fixed.

We work to achieve tangible, positive change by working with young people and those at risk of homelessness, from the early intervention stage through to crisis support and everything in between.

We are community owned and operated and our services are independent of faith and belief systems and are open and accessible to everyone.

We support people from all walks of life. We work collaboratively with a range of other organisations to ensure that people are supported.
