Christmas Appeal

Christmas Appeal

Make a difference in the lives of vulnerable and disadvantaged young people with a meaningful gift this Christmas.

Please help us to raise $20,000 through our ‘A Home For Christmas Appeal’ so that we can continue to provide a place to call home for 20 more young people, like Courtney, by transitioning them from homelessness into a home of their own.

 
Courtney’s Story

 
“I was struggling until Brisbane Youth Service and Zoe, my youth worker, came into my life and helped me – she believed in me. It was a very difficult time in my life… I was struggling… I wasn’t really sure if I wanted to be here anymore…

 
The team at Brisbane Youth Service gave me the support I desperately needed, which has given me the confidence to go on. They supported me for over 6 months and were always there at times of crisis. Their financial support and assistance with setting up a house with furniture, a fridge and a microwave was the difference between me living on the street or living in a home.

 
I’m amazed at the help I have received – the moment I got those keys it was a relief. Reflecting back from where I came to where I am now, knowing I can provide for my son, fills me with joy. We’re so blessed to have our own little place to call home… a place where we feel safe.

 
Your donation, no matter how big or small, will help to provide young people, like Courtney, and their families with a safe place to stay this Christmas.
