MY|Place youth housing supports, develops and empowers young people to break the cycle of homelessness, and encourage and equips them to make a positive contribution into their community.

This Saturday (17th of Nov) MY|Place is holding a Massive Garage Sale at the Yallah Woolshed, Princes H’way from 7am.

The community has got right behind this event and we have had 100’s of pre-loved donations come in over the past two weeks. This is a great opportunity to pick up a pre-Christmas bargain while making a difference in young people’s lives.
