Over the past 23 years, Lighthouse has supported more than 700 homeless young people to take their rightful place in the community by giving them a home, a sense of family and therapeutic care that is trauma informed, individually-tailored and proven to work. Through their Lighthouse experience, the young people heal, learn again to relate to others and rebuild their lives. There are eleven Lighthouse homes in Melbourne and regional Victoria where young people are supported by live-in Carers as well as specialist therapeutic services including case management and psychological services. One of these home supports young mums and their bubs. Each Lighthouse Home houses four young people for 6-24 months (depending on their needs) and a Live-In (Primary) Carer. Each home is supported by a volunteer Community Committee which helps with local community fundraising and connects with the local community to help with operational and maintenance costs.
We would be very grateful to receive baby goods, such as blankets, toys, booties or beanies. We have approximately 6 babies in the home per year. We would also be very grateful to receive any gorgeous handmade goodies to be included in a silent auctions at our ongoing fundraising events. These can be address to: Fundraising and Volunteer Coordinator, 13 Adolph Street, Richmond 3121 Victoria.
