Veritas postponed a number of fundraising activities planned to support our Transitional Youth Housing Appeal late last year out of the respect to the bushfires, and has again had to cancel our fundraising due to COVID. We are aiming to raise $250,000 to purchase a one-bedroom flat which will be leased at below-market rate to young people in Orange (regional NSW) who are transitioning from homelessness to independence for up to 12 months. During this time Veritas case workers support the young person to develop independent living skills including budgeting, tenant rights and responsibilities and planning simple, economical and nutritious meals. At the conclusion of the 12 months, Veritas provides a reference and advocacy and support for the young person to secure long-term accommodation through social housing or the highly competitive private rental market, to enable a new young person to transition from our youth refuge into the flat.
