Your gift today means that young people like Amy can call on us for emergency help in a time of terrifying crisis.
“I had to get away from home because I was scared of what Mum could do…I’m in a park and we don’t know what to do next…Will you please come and help me?”
When 14-year-old Amy* made this call to her trusted Youth Off The Streets caseworker, she was in desperate need. She had fled the violence of her home—at the hands of her mother. There was no time for her to pack belongings. She ran for her life with nothing but the clothes on her back. And now, she was sitting in a local park, terrified and alone. She had no idea what to do next.
At Youth Off The Streets, we do everything we can to help young people like Amy. Supporters like you can provide urgent and life-changing care. Everything from safe crisis accommodation and essential personal items like clean clothes and toiletries— to regular meal delivery and emotional support through counselling.
Sadly, Amy won’t be the last young person to call us in a moment of desperation when they have nowhere else to turn. You can help provide a safe alternative to returning to a home of abuse and neglect.
Please give today to provide a lifeline to young people like Amy during the most frightening times of their lives.
