You Can Make a Difference!
“Last Christmas wasn’t a good one. I didn’t see my family. I was on my own and sleeping on the street. Like many young people fleeing a very unsafe situation, I didn’t have the support to find a safe place to stay.” – *Gemma, 18 yrs
For Gemma, sadly, this wasn’t her first experience of homelessness.
Without the right support young people can struggle with homelessness their whole lives. Intervening early is critical to reduce their exposure to violence and trauma and prevent them from losing hope for the future.
Will you donate before 25 December to support young people, like Gemma, when they need it most?
Please note, due to recent policy updates and Brisbane Youth Service’s Covid-19 Safe Work Plan, we’re no longer able to accept physical donations of clothing, books, toys, food, toiletries etc. For this reason, we’re running our annual Christmas Hamper Drive a little differently this year. You can still help spread some much-needed good cheer by purchasing a Christmas food hamper online for a young person or young family in need – BUY NOW.
