The Detour program is an Innovation Action Project program and homelessness early intervention program for young people aged 12-24 years, and their families or significant adults. The Detour program, delivered in partnership by Melbourne City Mission, Uniting and Kids Under Cover is an initiative under the Victoria Department of Health & Human Services. This initiative aims to address potential homelessness for young people by providing intensive wrap-around coaching support services and individualised intensive support packages.
Detour identifies and addresses the root-causes of homelessness risk factors for young people, going deeper than the presenting circumstances. Providing access to integrated services with individually tailored support packages, Detour actively diverts young people away from homelessness, fast-tracking them back into the community.
