Finding and keeping a place to live

YFS works with people who are homeless – or about to become homeless – to help them find somewhere secure to live, and to develop the skills and supports they need to maintain a tenancy.

How we can help

The workers in our housing team are experts in private and social housing options and how to assist you to keep your housing.

We can give you advice about how to avoid losing your current tenancy and how to avoid problems with future tenancies. Our team can also help people find crisis accommodation if suitable shelters or short-term housing are available.

If you are homeless or at risk of being homeless we may be able to help you find and maintain housing. We will let you know about your options, and help you apply for housing with manageable rents.

Who is eligible

A person from Logan or surrounds of any age who finds themselves homeless or is at risk of losing their home is eligible for this service.

If you’re from an agency and are thinking about referring a client to our crisis accommodation service, please read our General Information Regarding Crisis Accommodation Program (CAP) Properties at YFS.


Client story

Leticia and Dale found themselves homeless, but they also found help. They came to YFS after sleeping rough for a while.

 YFS worked with a number of people to build a solution that met the couple’s needs and their wish for independence.

We negotiated with the Public Guardian, the Public Trustee, the Department of Public Works and Housing, and the Department of Communities, Disability Services and Seniors.

How to use our services

YFS understands it is hard to ring without knowing exactly what to ask for, that’s why we have one central door for all new people, called YFS Connect.
