YES! Housing

YES! Housing (Youth Externally Supported Housing) can help young people aged between 15-25 years who are at risk of, or are currently homeless, gain access and maintain stable, longer term housing whilst assisting and helping them grow their skills.

What is YES! Housing?

YES! Housing (Youth Externally Supported Housing) helps young people aged 15–25yrs who are homeless or at risk of homelessness to access and maintain stable, longer term housing with added support to develop independent living and tenancy skills. This is done through case planning and advocacy that is totally unique to the individual, so they are supported to achieve their goals.

YES! Housing is able to work with various family groups including singles, couples, young parents and extended family to assist them to obtain their ideal housing option. We can also help tenants settle into their new neighbourhood and community.

When working with young parents, we can help to build on effective parenting strategies and link in with other parenting supports where suitable. 

The program is flexible in terms of timeframes for support and will continue to work with tenants as long as they have goals they want to achieve.

YES! Housing also offers transitional accommodation for young parents and couples for up to 12 months.  These units are located both North (Mount Lawley) and South (Rockingham and Spearwood) of the river and provide the opportunity to work on goals in a supported environment whilst developing a rental history.

Through outreach case management, YES! Housing has been assisting young people for over 20 years to apply for Department of Housing tenancies in addition to providing assistance to access alternative housing options including, but not limited to, community housing, private rentals, transitional and crisis accommodation. 

Locations

We are able to work with young people across the Perth metropolitan area.
