About Lighthouse Foundation
Lighthouse Foundation’s vision is to end youth homelessness, together. We do this by supporting homeless young people to take their rightful place in the community. We provide them not just with a home, but with a family and a therapeutic model of care that is individually tailored and proven to work. Through their Lighthouse experience, young people can heal, learn again to relate to others and start to rebuild their lives.
There are currently ten Lighthouse homes across Melbourne. Each home accommodates four young people who are supported by two live-in carers and a dedicated team of psychologists and health professionals. Young people are welcome to stay with Lighthouse for as long as they need and may continue to access support through our outreach programs after they transition into independent living.
Lighthouse is a registered charity with ATO endorsement for all Tax Concessions. We are non-denominational and independent, as well as accredited to provide homelessness services by the Quality Improvement Council Ltd.
Over the past 24 years more than 750 young people have successfully broken the cycle of homelessness with the support of Lighthouse Foundation.
