  • Sleeping rough or in unstable or temporary housing
The Youth Housing and Reintegration Support service will help you to:
  • Identify your barriers to stable accommodation
  • Source and transition into safe and affordable accommodation
  • Gain greater independence and stability
  • Reconnect with your family and/or community
  • Find education, training and employment opportunities
  • Connect with specialist support services

There are two components within the YHARS Program:

YHARS After Care Brokerage Service

The YHARS After Care Brokerage Service provides funds for young people aged 17-21 years who are transitioning or have transitioned from under a Child Protection order (or under the Unaccompanied Humanitarian Minors program) to a greater level of independence and stability.  These funds can be applied for via your case worker and must be supported by your current case plan.
