I'd like to add a little extra to help cover fees.

Brisbane Youth Service is experiencing the highest demand for help in its 47-year history, with skyrocketing living costs and a dire shortage of affordable housing driving more young people to the organisation.

Young people experience the highest rates of homelessness in the state and are being disproportionately impacted by the ongoing housing crisis. This is compounded by having limited access to resources, being a low priority for any available accommodation, and facing a significant shortfall in social housing.

Early intervention is crucial; it helps young people avoid slipping into a lifetime of homelessness. By providing timely support, we can set them on a path toward stability and brighter futures.

Your support helps ensure that Brisbane Youth Service can provide wraparound supports to keep young people, and their children, safe in their time of need.

About Brisbane Youth Service

Since 1977, Brisbane Youth Service has worked to create #NewFutures for young people and young families at risk or experiencing homelessness.

We provide free, confidential services including crisis and transitional housing, emergency relief, physical and mental health services, alcohol and drug interventions, domestic and family violence support, and specialist programs for young women and young families.

We meet young people at a crucial time of great need – but also a great opportunity for early intervention supports.

As a community, if we want to break the cycle of homelessness we must ensure young people can access crucial services when they need them. Even with brief support from BYS, most young people can overcome difficulties, move out of crisis, and achieve life goals.
