Homeless 

 or about to 

 lose your 

home? 

If you live in the Logan area and are homeless or about to become homeless, we can help.

Talk to our YFS Connect team if you’re in Logan and are worried about your housing.

They can link you with people who can help.

Our specialist housing workers may be able to support you to find somewhere secure to live, and to develop the skills and supports you need to maintain a tenancy.

The workers in our Housing 1st team are specialists in locating private and social housing.

They go out of their way to help people find and maintain places to live with manageable rents.

If you are homeless, they can also link you with supports to overcome the reasons why you became homeless, whatever your circumstances.

YFS manages a small number of crisis accommodation properties that could provide short-term accommodation while we help you find a long-term housing solution.


Who is eligible?

You need to be from Logan or surrounds and be homeless or at risk of losing your home.

If you are homeless, YFS Connect will help you find crisis accommodation if suitable short-term housing or shelters are available.
