From the Streets to a Great Life

No accommodation, no employment and no prospects. Referred to QYFSS who gave me a roof over my head and provided me with the life skills needed to obtain my own job, licence and housing.

Kicked out of home during my senior schooling. Connected with QYFSS who provided me with accommodation which enabled me to obtain my QCE. Learned so much from the life skill workshops.
