ANNUAL REPORT 2014-15
Housing First works with people who are homeless or having a hard time keeping their homes.
We prioritise enabling people to move into a home, away from homelessness and into independent living. We help them find and keep somewhere to live and we assist them with their ongoing needs.
Personal Helpers and Mentors, PHaMs
PHaMs focuses on helping people with a mental illness to recover and reconnect with life. We work with them to address practical matters and help them improve their confidence and self-esteem.
We help people confront and deal with the challenges of living with mental distress; provide them with advice and help them regain control of their lives.
Money Management and Financial Counselling services assist people in personal financial difficulties.
We help them deal with any problem that can affect their finances; we show them ways to budget and we share skills and knowledge that will assist them with their future money management.
We also provide financial counselling for people affected by problem gambling. We work with them to develop strategies to protect their funds and reclaim a sense of control over their money.
YFS is funded by the Australian Government and the Queensland Government.
YFS acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are Australia's First Peoples and the traditional owners and custodians of the land on which we meet and work.
