Reach out to a young person - $1500
Homeless and at-risk young people are some of the most vulnerable and marginalised people in our society and require early intervention to help them survive this critical time in their young lives. Issues including family conflict, poverty, violence and physical and sexual abuse are all significant factors in why young people either leave home, or are forced to leave. Open Family Australia Outreach workers are proactive in going to where young people are to seek out those in need, rather than waiting for them to come to us. We engage with young people to link them to services which can help them connect back into a supportive environment and a healthy community.
Your donation of $1,500 will provide assertive outreach to at-risk and homeless young people for a week.
