Specialist Youth Homelessness

The Outer Southern Youth Homelessness Service (OSYHS) aims to assist young people in their transition to independent living through support and increasing access to other housing options.

Young people, aged between 16 and 25 years old who are homeless, transient or at risk of homelessness, can be referred to OSYHS. An Outreach Worker meets with the young person to assess their situation and to discuss possible options.

Our workers then engage individually with each young person to identify goals and develop a support plan so they can maintain their housing as they connect to their community. This may include assistance from family and friends, other agencies, and/or their local community.

The service can be accessed by agencies making referrals via phone; internet; email or a young person may phone us on 8392 3000 or attend our office at 34 Beach Road, Christies Beach for an interview.
