"You can't go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending"
To help as many young people as possible.
To provide a dedicated, family home to teenagers who don’t have one.
To give them what is every child’s right - a home environment that offers love, respect and boundaries.
We want to break the cycle of abuse and addiction.
To provide an alternative solution to foster group homes.
We are an independent, community based organisation established by a determined and passionate handful of individuals who want to help the worryingly high number of young teens in Australia who don’t have a permanent foster placement.
These young people are currently housed in motel rooms or in residential group homes and supervised by a rotating roster of youth workers.
These young people deserve a whole lot better.
We have a core purpose – to lift vulnerable young people out of trauma, affirm their worth and support them as they develop a new path for their life.
We do this by providing a dedicated, loving family home to teenagers who have been denied what is every child’s right - to establish emotional connections and experience love, respect, safety and boundaries.
The young people that come to live with us have been subjected to horrific domestic violence, sexual and emotional abuse, alcoholism and drug addiction. They have then been moved around multiple foster care placements before being brought to us. We mindfully work on breaking the cycle of neglect, abuse and hopelessness that our teens have experienced so they can heal and take their place in the world.
