Kids, Youth and Outreach Centre
We want to reach even more young people, so we are raising funds to open a Kids Youth & Outreach Centre. Our vision is to set up a community of support, care and acceptance to help turn out confident, resilient and self assured young people.
The centre will operate as a safe and supportive space for vulnerable young people needing refuge, assistance with provision of food and clothing, as well as welfare services. It will also be a fun and exciting place, offering free games and activities, and training in cooking, life skills and assistance with organisational duties including coaching in homework/schooling.
Our outreach program will enable young people to seek assistance, and where necessary, obtain referral to welfare agencies, counselling services and ongoing mentoring and support.
Child Safety Policy: Endless Horizons is committed to promoting and protecting the interests and safety of children. This organisation complies with Victorian Child Safe Standards. Everyone working at Endless Horizons is responsible for the care and protection of children and reporting information about child abuse.
2. Refuge for Victims of Domestic Violence
It is a sad fact that domestic violence is the leading cause of homelessness in Australia. The number of homeless people jumped by more than 15000 in five years before 2016 and this number is increasing. On any given night in Australia, 100,000 people are homeless. More than one third are youths aged 12-18 and young adults aged 18-25. Half of these young people are escaping the danger of domestic abuse.
Our vision is to set up a refuge for victims of domestic violence that is connected to welfare services to help the most vulnerable citizens in our community.
3. Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation Centre
Addiction is an increasing fact of modern society. There is currently a shortage in the area of addiction treatments in Victoria. To advance our work to facilitate rehabilitation and long term recovery from Drug and Alcohol Dependence, we aim to set up a rehabilitation facility which will also provide employment opportunities to those who have successfully maintained sustainable recovery.
