A kind and generous donation from you today can help a disadvantaged young person.
Most of the kids I meet in my work are on the verge of homelessness and social isolation. Tragically many of them have suffered multiple traumas, including domestic violence, neglect and physical and sexual abuse.
Expelled from school, depressed and suffering from an eating disorder, Ann* was at rock bottom when she came to us at Cumberland Outreach. Years of psychological abuse had taken its toll and her future was looking bleak.
Case workers at Cumberland Outreach provided Ann with immediate support once she arrived to seek help. She was referred to a psychologist and participated in special youth programs which helped her build foundations of trust and respect.
Ann was able to turn her life around so much that she has finished school and is now receiving help with resume writing and interview skills. She is completing a work-experience placement that will help her gain valuable skills as an employee.
There is no greater reward than seeing kids like Ann start to value themselves and establish trusting relationships that will help them to navigate their futures. Our supporters are a valuable part of this process. Your continued support allows us to continue providing assistance to change the lives of disadvantaged young people in Australia.

As an individual, school, university, TAFE, workplace or social group you can organise an activity or challenge that can be fun and inspiring while helping disadvantaged young people. An existing event may also be a great way for you to support Youth Off The Streets.
This event is held in early May each year and brings together the real estate industry for a day to support young people at risk. Hosted by Damien Cooley of Cooley Auctions, the 2015 event raised over $65,000 making the total raised over the past seven years to be in excess of $450,000.Read what other events you can join near you
In March 2015, Logan Outreach launched Kicking Goals 2 Transition, which focused on self improvement through a series of workshops and sporting activities. The program helped young people transition from juvenile detention back into the community through setting goals and working on personal growth.
The program was run over the course of eight weeks and helped young people: develop life skills; increase their health and fitness; build team work; and their employability skills.Read more
