Support a young person with the essentials for their new home.
Make a cash donation to the #TwoFeet campaign
#TwoFeet is about independence not dependence, resilience not fragility, prosperity not poverty. Our focus is on long term and sustainable benefit to the young people, benefit that the young person has a role in creating, too, which is the core ingredient to it becoming a genuine and sustainable life-changing process.
HYPA’s Trace-A-Place service on Currie Street sees several young people, every day who are experiencing homelessness. We have helped young people in crisis to access appropriate accommodation for over 35 years.
But we need your help. Young people need more than a roof. Help us provide essential support by donating an amount of your choice below.

Why support #TwoFeet?
Because you help us to change people’s lives for the better. Breaking the cycle of welfare dependency and poverty is achievable with the right kind of support. Donating to #TwoFeet isn’t just about supporting an individual – our approach is about doing something that supports whole families, communities and generations to come.
Homelessness is one of the greatest forms of vulnerability in our community.
For a young person, they are also in a critical formative life stage, and their ability to navigate homelessness is impacted because of their age – they are the most vulnerable cohort experiencing homelessness.
You can choose how you support HYPA
You can donate to purchase items such as food, warm clothing and shower facilities for young people experiencing a crisis. Or, you can donate to our transitional housing programs that provide intense support and case management for young people to access and maintain safe, affordable accommodation. Our programs engage young people to create their own independence through education and employment.
