There are many reasons why young people find themselves without a home. For Rebecca, it was a “father who liked to speak with his fists”. Unable to stay at home, finish school or get a job, Rebecca slept in a hostel and then on her friends’ couches. “But friends’ patience can only stretch so far,” she says.
You can help us help people like Rebecca. Host a sleepover and raise money for safe refuges where young Aussies can sleep. Together we can give food, blankets, counselling and support to kids who are experiencing homelessness to get them out of danger and back on their feet.
