Mission Australia's Reconnect is a federally funded and community-based program supporting young people between 12 - 18 who are experiencing homelessness, or are at risk of becoming homeless. Reconnect uses family focussed early intervention strategies to help the young person to stabilise and improve their housing situation, achieve family reconciliation, and improve their level of engagement with work, education, training and the community.We support young people and their families by using a variety of strategies such as counselling, family mediation and holistic case management. In addition we run customised therapeutic and/or educational groups for young people and parents.
