Orana

Located in Brisbane North, Carinity Orana provides crisis accommodation and emergency housing for young people aged 16 to 19 years who have become or are at risk of becoming homeless.

Operating like a family home, Orana caters for up to five residents at a time with a maximum stay of six months. During their stay at Orana, our youth workers provide emotional and practical support to assist young people to access education, training, employment, counselling services, recreational activities, new social networks and permanent accommodation. Orana aims to provide the support and assistance they need to transition to independence, and like a family, has rules and guidelines in place to ensure the house remains a safe, respectful and supportive space for all.

Sponsor a Bed

Many of the young people referred to our service lack the basic items they need to live such as clothing, uniforms, toiletries, linen and access to transport – things we often take for granted. Our services rely on donations for support. Your donation of any amount can help provide a young person with a bed. But more importantly, you’re providing them with safety, support and hope for the future.
