For over 40 years, Yfoundations has served as the NSW peak body providing a voice for children and young people at risk of and experiencing homelessness, as well as the services that provide direct support to them.
Yfoundations is proudly a membership-based organisation with a network of over 50 organisations across NSW.
We aim to create a future without youth homelessness by campaigning for children and young people experiencing and at risk of homelessness. We work collaboratively with service providers, NGOs, government departments and community members to provide advocacy, sector development and policy advice, health projects, research, and services for children and young people.
The name ‘Yfoundations’ reflects the fundamental principle on which our work is based. We believe an essential key to ending youth homelessness is supporting the growth and development of all children and young people through five foundations.
