You can light a path out of homelessness

No child should be sleeping rough in Australia, yet almost 44,000 young people under the age of 25 are experiencing homelessness, with even more at risk.

Stepping Stone House provides safety, support and protection for young Australians escaping neglect, violence and abuse. With your help a young person can wake up to a new beginning, filled with support, education and self-determination.

When you Sleep Under the Stars, you’re helping to light the path to a brighter future for disadvantaged youth.
