The Karrung Foyer is an integrated housing and support program for young people aged 16-25 years. It provides support to eligible young people from the Grampians region to engage in education, employment and training with the aim of moving towards independence and the prevention of future homelessness. Young people can stay in the program for up to two years.

Karrung also has a Short Stay program. The expectation is that young people who are assisted through this program will stay at Karrung for an average of six weeks before moving onto a range of other accommodation and support models with the possibility of entering into the Foyer Program.
