What causes youth homelessness?

A leading cause of youth homelessness is family breakdown. Family breakdown can happen for a number of reasons – poor communication, differing expectations, significant life events and experiences.
Thank you to Share the Dignity who last week donated some fabulous handbags filled with goodies for our young women and girls. Read about them here.

Locals Matter at Grill'd Dee Why We’ve been selected to participate in Local Matters at Grill’d Dee Why this December, the Grill’d community donation program that sees each Grill’d restaurant donate $500 back into the community every month. The donation is split between 3 local community groups $300 / $100 / $100. We’d love your support in receiving the highest $300 donation! Simply head to Grill’d Dee Why during December for a burger and pop your Local Matters token in our jar. The group with the most tokens at the end of the month receives the largest donation.
