Melbourne City Mission (MCM) is adding new streams to its support (integrated service) model at Frontyard, including the CBD’s first high support crisis accommodation.
While the new streams will have a strong focus on assertively engaging with young people aged 17-25 who are sleeping rough in the city, Frontyard will continue to be a place where all young people experiencing, or at risk of, homelessness can access support.
Frontyard Youth Services is a specialist youth service providing a range of multidisciplinary programs to meet the holistic needs of young people aged between 12 and 25 years who are at risk or experiencing homelessness. Frontyard aims to support young people to meet their physical, emotional and social needs and to develop pathways out of homelessness. Many of the services at Frontyard work with young people across greater Melbourne and throughout Victoria.
Frontyard’s support model includes a suite of primary and allied health, specialist housing, assertive outreach, therapeutic supports, early intervention & prevention services, legal, education and employment support. Additionally, Frontyard’s 18 bed crisis accommodation operates 24/7 and provides higher intensity supports, including enhanced mental health, drug and alcohol, and therapeutic supports, to respond and creatively engage those young people with the most complex barriers.
