South Australia campaign launch & Youth Homelessness Matters Day
Anglicare South Australia launched the Home Stretch campaign on April 3rd in the beautiful Carclew House in Adelaide. With Ministers, opposition leaders and media in attendance, it was a great morning! We heard from two amazing women from the Create Foundation speak about their experience and their reasons on why we need care extended post 18 years.
Catherine stirred up emotions in the room with a beautiful song she composed and asked everyone:
“Would you make your 18 year old move out of home?”
It’s a question we need to keep asking our politicians and decision makers, until we get a fairer system so that all young people get a better chance at life.

#YHMD2017 update and media coverage
It was Youth Homelessness Matters Day on 5th of April, a day to celebrate young people’s resilience and capabilities. It’s also about reflecting on what we as a society can do to support young people at risk of homelessness and provide young people the opportunities most of us take for granted.
To read on how we can reduce homelessness by this simple reform see some of the YHMD2017 publications below:
