About Lighthouse Foundation
Lighthouse Foundation provides homeless young people from backgrounds of long-term neglect and abuse, with a home, a sense of family, and around-the-clock therapeutic care that is individually tailored, trauma informed and proven to work.
For over 25 years Lighthouse has successfully supported over 800 young people to break the cycle of homelessness, move into employment and educational opportunities, and overcome damaging life experiences.
Each suburban Lighthouse home provides safety, therapeutic counselling and guidance for up to four young people, supported by two live-in carers and a dedicated team of psychologists and health professionals.
Through their Lighthouse experience, young people can heal, learn again to relate to others and start to rebuild their lives.
Lighthouse’s unique Therapeutic Family Model of CareTM enables young people to stay with Lighthouse for as long as they need and they can continue to access support through our Outreach programs after they transition into independent living.
Lighthouse depends on generous community support to enable our important work to continue.
