Three Years and Going Strong in Ōtepōti 21 April 2021
It's three years this month since the first rangatahi moved into our Ōtepōti Youth Transition Home (YTH). Since then 61 young people have successfully transitioned through our YTH houses into independent living - a success rate of over 90%!
The YTH model is extremely cost-effective, doesn't need any purpose-built facilities (our houses are rentals from private landlords), and achieves successful transitions in around 20 weeks on average. Find out more here: https://lnkd.in/gKMrwZd
It has taken some great social service partnerships to get YTH off the ground, and a core group of change-focused funders like; Ministry of Social Development (MSD), Te Tūāpapa Kura Kāinga - Ministry of Housing and Urban Development NZ, and Otago Community Trust
