Nathanael House is a 24 hour support service housing 15 to 17 year old young people experiencing homelessness.
St Bartholomew's Youth Accommodation-Giving youth a better tomorrow!
St Bartholomew's Youth Accommodation
was set up over twenty years ago to assist with the growing need in our community to help homeless young people.
We believe in helping prepare young people for the real world.

We do this by supporting them in times of crisis, and by equipping them with the practical and emotional skills they need as they grow towards independence. Young people taking responsibility for themselves and learning to interact positively with others are important parts of our program.

Our youth shelter, Nathanael House.
provides accommodation and support to young people aged 15 to 17 years old for up to three months and is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. When young people stay at Nathanael House, they are asked to participate in a case plan. This plan helps capture where they are at, and where they would like to see their future heading. From this our staff help the young person formulate actions to achieve these goals, and we then help them where ever we can. These goals can include the areas of family relationships, education, employment and training, future accommodation, health, finances, recreation, spiritual beliefs or other areas. We work closely with other services that provide support for clients facing issues like substance abuse, mental health problems or offending tendencies.
Our transitional house, Bart's Place
is a long term residence designed to accommodated young people who are more independent. Young people who live at Bart's have a daily activity like school, study or work. As Bart's Place does not receive ongoing funding, they must also have an income, as they need to pay for rates, electricity and food.
Out Team
At at Nathanael House is made up of a co-ordinator and four youth workers.
