We support over 200 girls and young women a year who are 13-17 years of age and homeless or at risk of homelessness and dealing with domestic and family violence, abuse, neglect or other difficult and traumatic circumstances. Your support can have a life changing effect on a young woman and open up opportunities she otherwise would not have had.
