Our Snapshots

Foyers are committed to building a bank of evidence to continually demonstrate how our work will help change the trajectory of youth homelessness, education and employment outcomes and provide benefits to young people.

Our snapshot will give you an insight into the young people who reside in Foyers, how they found Foyer, average age, stay and other key data such as:


  • Foyers supported 526 young people during 2020
  • Approx 52% of our young people have experienced family violence or breakdown

We believe Foyers can help young people avoid homelessness, improve mental health, enjoy re-connection with community and family, be engaged in work or study and have a safe, stable home style environment.

Enjoy our snapshot.
