An innovative, inclusive approach to youth homelessness and incarceration. More than a shelter, it’s a fresh start!
One Vision 'Village off the Streets' removes the barriers homeless youth face in completing their education by providing a safe and stable living environment as well as support and guidance from qualified staff to help them transition into employment.
With safe housing, clothing, hygiene products, nutritious food, counselling and education focused on youth’s passion, the program provides all the needed elements to enable youth to succeed. Along with education and case management services, the Village offers a variety of workshops and group support such as the Drug and Alcohol Awareness, Healthy Sexuality, Music Therapy, Stress Management, Life Skills and Recreation.
Youth at risk of detention can be referred, street youth given a place to stay and education taught in a hands-on environment. As a provision of free board and lodgings at the village, youth will be required to engage in education and contribute to the village community. They will have the opportunity to attend TAFE on campus with subjects relevant to local vocational pathways or linked in with partnered institutes in other subject areas.
