Every year Brisbane Youth Service works with over
1,500 young people (aged 12-25) and their
children. Here are some of their stories...
With support from a Young Families worker, Fotina overcame parenting challenges and found renewed belief in herself and an inspired direction for the future of her young family.
With determination in the face of adversity and support and advocacy from Phoenix House, Kate achieved remarkable personal and academic results despite experiencing homelessness in the final years of high school.
Since 1977 Brisbane Youth Service has been working to create new futures for vulnerable and at-risk young people (aged 12-24 yrs), providing free, confidential services including: crisis and transitional housing; emergency relief; medical clinic and mental health services; street outreach; specialist young women’s services; and parenting and family assistance.
BYS takes a holistic approach in our work with young people – dealing with a multitude of comlex issues which might be troubling them. Along with homelessness, these often include experiences of violence or abuse; financial, legal or relationship problems; or medical, psychological and substance use issues.
