At YFS, we back people in Logan and surrounding areas not just to overcome adversity, but to thrive.
If you or someone you know needs support, we can help.
For other organisations providing emergency relief in the Logan area, check the Emergency Relief list.
If you have no food because you are in quarantine or in isolation due to COVID-19 or are affected by floods or other natural disasters and have no other means of support, call the Community Recovery Hotline on 1800 173 349.

The theme of our 2020-21 Impact Report is change. It tells the story of some of the inspiring people we worked with and profiles some of the new ways we backed people to change their circumstances and improve their ability to thrive.
Despite the ongoing challenges of the coronavirus pandemic, we worked alongside more than 7,000 people to support them to create positive change in their lives, from moving into a stable home to improving their resilience.
“I used to not have the confidence to stand up to people. Now, I don’t take any nonsense. My children’s safety is my top priority.”
“I now have hope, and I never had that before. I am so much happier and I can now fully focus on my school.”
Led by young people in the Logan area, R4Respect and Men4Respect are education and prevention strategies to support young people to develop the values, knowledge and skills they need for respectful relationships. Logan business, organisations, community groups and government departments lend their full support to these important programs.
We work with people and organisations from varied backgrounds because we have found that by working together, we can achieve the best outcomes. Our volunteers, partners and collaborators bring new skills, shared resources and innovative ways of working. We would value your involvement.
