FAMILIES SOUGHT FOR TEEN HOUSING PROGRAM

Families from Grafton to Tweed Heads, are being asked to help accommodate at-risk young people.

Lismore based not-for-profit ‘Social Futures’ is seeking carers, willing to temporarily house teens experiencing trouble at home.

“It would suit people from any background and profession. They don’t have to own their own home. Really what we need is people who have room in their house.”

“There’s a real opportunity to see good outcomes.”

Placements would last up to 28 days – during which time counsellors would mediate family disputes.

Volunteers would receive specialised training and ongoing financial support.

For more information and to express interest, visit Social Futures’ website.
