For the past 30 years Phoenix House has provided early intervention and support services to the most challenged young people living in Northern Sydney and delivered life-changing outcomes.
Norths contribution continues to allow Phoenix House to provide support services and programs to more than 300 young people and their families. Specifically the funding for the Transit program, an alternative education program which focuses on building living skills and ensuring sustainability through reengagement back into education or progression into the workforce, supported with counselling services, case management and workshops to boost resilience and social inclusion.
Prior to attending Phoenix House Youth Services, young people are often disengaged from education due to a number of adverse factors, such as family breakdown, substance abuse, bullying, mental health issues and homelessness. Phoenix House provides support in developing individual life and learning plans, getting the young people in the community work, life and learning ready.
