We support them to find appropriate, stable longer-term accommodation, whatever that may be.   

What support does CASY House provide?

  • A room with a shared/ensuite bathroom
  • Access to communal areas, including a shared kitchen, laundry, living and dining area
  • Access to onsite Case Manager to assist with referrals to different support networks identified by the young person.

“Having a safe, secure and affordable residence at CASY House has made the experience of having to deal with finding accommodation as well as prioritising my responsibilities at school and work so much easier. It has lifted a lot of stress and depression that comes from being homeless and has encouraged me to stay driven and motivated to accomplish great things.”
