Reconnect – North West
Reconnect is an early intervention service strategy under the Housing Assistance and Homelessness Prevention Program with an emphasis on family reconciliation.
The Reconnect program uses community-based early intervention services to assist young people aged 12 to 18 years who are homeless, or at risk of homelessness, and their families. Reconnect assists young people to stabilise their living situation and improve their level of engagement with family, work, education, training and their local community.
Reconnect breaks the cycle of homelessness by providing counselling, group work, mediation and practical support to the whole family.
