In 2017, Youth Futures WA was awarded $27,500 for its program, The NEST, designed to help teenage mothers who are homeless or living in unsuitable conditions and are consequently at risk of losing custody of their child. The funds were used to support the expansion of the Outreach Service that is a preventative strategy against homelessness that aims to stabilise the lives of the teenage mothers while developing their parenting, financial and independent living skills. An Outreach Support Worker assists clients to seek appropriate accommodation and advocates on their behalf with the Department of Child Protection, all the while supporting the young mum with their baby’s development and personal issues.
