This is the USU Team's 5th Sleepout and this year we will be raising money for Youth off the Street and their programs targeting homeless young people in NSW. This year we will be sleeping rough on Friday 11th August 2017.
Youth Off The Streets offers a continuum of care to young people between the age of 12 - 22 who are chronically homeless, abused, suffering from addiction or in general need of our help. We offer a range of programs including crisis and short term accommodation to long term residential care, counselling, secondary education and rehabilitation. We have extended our services to various communities and regional centres throughout NSW via our Outreach Programs. We also operate a volunteer run food van service each night in Kings Cross.
We have developed these programs in response to the growing needs of our city and regional communities over the past 20 years. Where our young people are in trouble, we will be there.
