Foyers a launching point for young people

Education First Youth (EFY) Foyers work to break the cycle of homelessness by supporting young people, aged 16 to 24, to build a secure and sustainable future. With supported student housing, dedicated coaching, and a suite of opportunities and resources, EFY Foyers help youth to build the skills they need to lead fulfilling, independent and productive lives.

Launch Housing currently operates two Education First Youth Foyers – Holmesglen EFY Foyer based at Holmesglen Institute’s Glen Waverley campus, and Kangan EFY Foyer based at the Kangan Institute in Broadmeadows.

In the following video, Foyer Student Sakshi speaks about the impact the Foyers have made for her across two years of support.

“I never thought the support would be so extensive, so focused individually on what you can do as a person and what your strengths are and move you forward, like I’ve moved forward in within these last two years,” – Sakshi.
