New Public Housing _ Melbourne VIC. Australia _ In Progress
We’re proud to be working alongside the Department of Health and Human Services on a significant community project in Melbourne’s outer suburbs.
Originating from the ‘Support for Young People That Really Counts’ program, the project offers a housing and support model for young people that is intended to provide a bridge between intensive support or crisis accommodation (such as a youth refuge) and secure, long-term, independent accommodation. Known as the ‘Step Forward’ approach, the model provides early intervention to move young people toward independent living, helping them avoid drifting into long-term homelessness.
