Help us build a better future by supporting young Tasmanians.

Our mission is to end youth homelessness. Despite complex barriers, we know that with the right supports young people can move out of crisis towards brighter futures.

Everyone deserves a safe place to live and sleep at night. Putting a roof over the heads of young people is the key to helping them get back on track, reconnect with education or employment and realise their full social potential.

We would like to see investment in early intervention initiatives for children and young people, which saves money in the long-term and contributes to a stronger community overall.

We can change the stories of these young lives and turn fear and trauma into hope and opportunity.

Imagine if we had a space in town, close to schools, shops and support services all to help young people reach their full potential.

That’s our future.

We want to light up the community with infrastructure that delivers long term benefits. Ensuring young Tasmanians remain housed, healthy, educated and employed.

Let’s lay the foundations for a brighter tomorrow.

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.
