St John's Youth Services Helping young people break the cycle of homelessness
Our major charity since 2010
Credit Union SA is a proud supporter of St John’s Youth Services, which strives to improve the lives of the most disadvantaged young people in our community through the provision of emergency accommodation, child support services and transition-to-independent-living programs.
St John’s receives over 1,000 referrals a year and has accommodated a total of over 7,500 individual young people and almost 1,000 small dependent children.
Many of these young people stay in the services only once, but over half return within three months and many face such overwhelming barriers that the services provided by St John’s become their de-facto family.
