Help us raise money for youth homelessness by supporting the Steps Homelessness Sleepout for Young Adults!

Did you know that almost a quarter of all those experiencing homelessness in Australia are actually young people aged 12-24 years old?

Concern Australia is hosting a young adults’ sleepout to raise awareness for youth homelessness whilst fundraising to support Steps Outreach Service.

Since 1985, STEPS Outreach Service has been providing outreach and support to young people and families experiencing homelessness through street outreach in Melbourne. The STEPS team of youth workers and volunteers provide long-term relational support, referral and advocacy, and material aid as they help the young people and families with children to access positive pathways out of homelessness. These connections that our STEPS program creates, assists young people to build a sense of self-worth and equips them with the tools they need to create a positive future.

Whilst participation in the overnight event is limited to a small group of young adults, you can support us in other ways to make a difference for Steps and its clients. The best way to become involved is through sponsoring a participant, or providing a financial donation for the event… all proceeds go directly to the Steps Outreach Service.
