Every night, vulnerable young people are being shut out and refused overnight accommodation.
We have the commitment, experience and an evidence-based model to open doors for them and stop the cycle of homelessness.
Our Passages Youth Engagement Hubs in Perth and Peel provide daytime support to hundreds of at-risk young people every year. But after we close our doors, many are shut out of the system and refused overnight accommodation because they have complex needs. There are children as young as 12 without vital help at a crucial stage in their personal development. There are teenagers and young people being turned away at a critical point that could condemn them to a lifetime of chronic homelessness.
It doesn’t have to be this way.
Somewhere to stay early on in my homeless journey would have made all the difference. The longer you’re out there on the street, the harder it is to break the cycle of homelessness.

Our Model is proven and ready to go.
Our proven approach implements as few requirements as practicable to minimise barriers and maximise accessibility for this hard to reach population. We call it our intensive intervention Low Threshold and Change approach to service delivery at Passages Youth Engagement Hubs and Vinnies Tom Fisher House. And it’s working for young people with a variety of complex needs.
We have a clear vision for Vinnies Tom Fisher House for Youth.
The solution is right here, ready to go, with a team that’s best placed to deliver.
