When isolated and scared young people come to Youth Off The Streets, our first priority is to find them a safe place to live.

The Inner West Youth Housing Service helps house homeless young people from crisis to independence. Our caring youth workers support at risk young people as they make the transition to independent living, into education and take steps towards a more positive future.

Through our Outreach program, Youth Off The Streets connects at risk young people with their peers and communities. We break the cycle of isolation in a safe informal environment. Young people can connect with their peers and relate to their families – and ultimately reconnect with the whole community.
