Another PIF House to help more Victorian young people
April 2019 VIC
PIF House Clayton is now in the design and development stage. The 6-bedroom home, being built for Lighthouse Foundation with project partner Frasers Property Australia, will house young people who have suffered long-term abuse and neglect.
The house will be a safe and nurturing environment where Lighthouse Foundation will provide therapeutic counselling and guidance for young people aged between 15 and 22, supported by two live-in carers and a dedicated team of psychologists and health professionals. Through this experience, young people will feel empowered to build lives of independence.
Through the Lighthouse Foundation’s Therapeutic Family Model of Care, young people can stay in a home for as long as they need, having a ‘lifetime support membership’ through Outreach programs. Their transition to an independent life is made easier with 24-hour, seven days a week support.
The Lighthouse Foundation has successfully supported over 800 young people to break the cycle of homelessness over the last 25 years.
