On Friday 9th October, our Perth team created Christmas hampers and care packs for Mission Australia.
As Mission Australia Work4Good partners, we continue to support local communities and believe that working together we can make difference to the lives of the less fortunate.
The care packs will be going to Mission Australia Youth Accommodation Support Services.
Mission Australia’s Youth Accommodation Support Service in Victoria Park provides crisis accommodation for homeless young people aged 15-18 years, and transitional housing for people aged 16 – 25 years.
Crisis accommodation is provided for up to three months with the accommodation centre visited by a drug and alcohol counsellor once a week.
The service’s transitional housing is supported by a youth worker and consists of two on-site units. There are also three community-based units for young parents.
The hampers will be going to Mission Australia Child and Family Support.
Mission Australia’s Child and Family Support Service provides a range of support for children and young people (up to 18 years of age) and their families, caregivers and support networks who are dealing with a mental health issue.
