Lighthouse Foundation

Lighthouse Foundation’s vision is to end youth homelessness, together. We do this by supporting homeless young people to take their rightful place in the community. We provide them not just with a home, but with a family and a therapeutic model of care that is individually tailored and proven to work. Over the past 24 years we have helped more than 700 young people to successfully break the cycle of homelessness.
Each Lighthouse home accommodates four young people who are supported by two live-in carers and a dedicated team of psychologists and health professionals. Young people are welcome to stay with Lighthouse for as long as they need and continue to receive support through outreach programs after they transition into independent living. Lighthouse currently operates 10 homes throughout Melbourne and Regional Victoria. Through partnerships we oversee delivery of the Lighthouse Model of Care in three homes in South Australia with more poised to come on board across NSW and Victoria during 2015.
