We support homeless and vulnerable young people (aged 12-25 years) and their children, to secure and maintain housing. We provide emergency support and a range of services to assist young people to address physical and mental health issues, establish successful relationships and support networks and access pathways to education and employment.
I moved to Brisbane from Northern NSW after the Lismore floods in July 2022 and was living in a boarding house before I found BYS.Where I’m living at the moment, I have a good view of planes coming and going which I love as my dream is to be a commercial pilot.
I am a young Aboriginal, Gurang Gurang woman, who didn’t have the best upbringing which led to me living on the streets.I finally can pursue my own dreams and goals and know that my family have a safe home.
BYS continues to be inspired by the innovative ways organisations and the community choose to support us. With your help, we can make an even bigger impact in the lives of vulnerable young people.
