Young South Australians struggling with life have been coming to us for help for more than 20 years.  Many are working through complex issues of family breakdowns, domestic violence, homelessness, drug addiction and more.

Our Inner Southern Youth Homelessness Service provides support to those aged 15 - 25 who are experiencing homelessness or are at risk of homelessness. Our youth-specific case workers help individuals overcome the obstacles preventing them from moving forward.

If this is you, our aim is not just to meet your immediate residential needs but to help you overcome the issues that caused your homelessness. If you have recently become homeless, facilitating family communication or reconnecting you back to other close family members is often an effective solution.


We offer:

Crisis Support

24 hour supported residential accommodation service with a comprehensive range of personal supports

Support to successfully move to independent housing

If you are ready to be more independent, we can offer a place in a semi-supported unit. You still receive all the support you need - with the clear aim of equipping you to be able to live on your own. This program operates across the City of Marion, the City of Holdfast Bay and the City of Mitcham.
