At Frontyard, we have 18 beds available for crisis accommodation, with 9 beds on each floor. The bedrooms were purpose-built with ensuites, quality finishes, and furniture.
Young people can stay in these bedrooms while we assist in finding a long-term solution.
Our innovative, disruptive model of care offers a 24-hour service so a young person can find accommodation as soon as possible.
Referrals to the Circuit Breaker accommodation program must come through homelessness access points. Please see MYSS Access Point contact details listed above and visit the DHHS website for other homelessness support agencies.
