Reconnect Program

The Reconnect Program is funded by the Commonwealth Government, Department of Social Services (DSS).  This early intervention outreach program covers the Townsville area and the target group is young people aged between 12 and 18 years of age who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless, and their families.

The program operates in conjunction with welfare agencies and government departments (eg. Centrelink) to improve local coordination of services for young people. The young people involved in the program are reconnected when it is appropriate with, or introduced to, family, educational pursuits, vocational training, employment options and the broader community.
