Centacare’s Outer North Youth Homelessness Service provides case management, early intervention, outreach, post-crisis and wait-list support to young people aged 15-25 years old who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.

Services are delivered to young people at home and in a family context across the Playford, Gawler and Barossa regions.

Centacare has 36 properties in the area from Elizabeth to Nurioopta which can be allocated to clients once they have been assessed.

The service has helped young people resume education, and gain employment and long-term housing. This in turn has provided outcomes such as reunification with children and familial stability.

Emergency and intensive accommodation support for young people aged 15 to 18 years who are living homeless is provided at Carlow Place, a 24-hour supported core-and-cluster residential facility at Elizabeth.

The service has capacity to house eight young people (four males and four females).

Using a case management and trauma-informed framework, Carlow Place provides a safe, caring environment with a focus on assisting young people to review and address life circumstances that have led to homelessness and/or the risk of homelessness.
