It only takes one caring adult, just like you, to change a child’s life. 

The next few months will be an incredibly challenging and uncertain time for everybody across the country, but it will be especially difficult for the vulnerable children and young people in our care.

Throughout this crisis, many of us will turn to our friends and family for support. Just like you, our young people will want to do the same, only they have nowhere else to go. Lighthouse is their home, and our Carers and community are their family.

Right now, we need your help more than ever before so that we can continue to keep our homes open and ensure that our staff are there to support our kids, even in the darkest hours. We know that we face many challenges ahead, but your donations are our children’s lifelines and is what will help us see through this together.

If you’re still able to donate, please give what you can, even if it’s only a few dollars. 


In collaboration with Melbourne-based artist Georgia Perry, Lighthouse has also created this deck of playing cards to help spread awareness about youth homelessness. These cards are proudly Australian-made and printed in Melbourne. They’re perfect for playing indoors on a rainy day, or as a gift for a loved one, and are sure to become a treasured keepsake. The best part is: every dollar goes towards funding Lighthouse’s life-changing programs. 

We hope that using these playing cards with your family and friends strengthens connections and builds a sense of community, like we do here at Lighthouse.
