Transitional Youth Housing Appeal
Veritas House has launched a fundraising appeal to raise $250,000 to purchase a Transitional Youth Housing property in Orange to assist young people who are exiting crisis accommodation to transition into independent living. For many young people experiencing homelessness that stay at the youth refuge and who cannot return safely to their homes, it can be difficult to secure a lease in the private rental market with no prior rental history and limited finances, particularly in Orange which has one of the lowest rate of rental properties available in NSW. To help address this, Veritas aims to purchase a one-bedroom flat which it will operate as a transitional youth housing property, leasing the property at below market rent to young people who are transitioning from homelessness to independence; and Veritas case workers support them over a 3-6 month period to obtain furnishings, secure ongoing income, learn budgeting and tenancy management skills and develop a rental history. At the end of their lease, Veritas will provide a reference and assist the young person to secure long-term private rental accommodation through advocacy and support.

Education and Employment Fund
Many of the young people we work with are overcoming some major obstacles in their lives and at the same time trying to continue their education or enter the workforce. For many, finding funds for necessary educational resources such as workboots for apprentices or books and laptops for students can be another barrier to try to overcome. To help with this, Veritas has established an Education and Employment Fund and will invest all donations received towards this fund, with the income earned annually used to support young people in the local region to pursue their vocational ambitions.
