Trace-A-Place is our specialist youth homelessness service that has helped young people access crisis accommodation and wrap around supports for over 35 years.

Our Youth Homelessness services are all operating, and will continue to operate and support young people in the Eastern Adelaide region via outreach appointments, phone and online support. Trace-A-Place Shopfront is still open 9-4.30pm every week day and we are providing safe spaces for young people to access shower, toilet, hygiene products, sanitary items, food etc.

We need everyone to ensure they are well before attending. This is really important for their health and the safety of our staff – and importantly the ability of us to continue opening our safe space for those who need it.

Youth Space

We bring together important services, expertise and immediate supports for young people experiencing homelessness or housing insecurity. Trace-A-Place encompasses the Youth Homelessness Gateway, Eastern Adelaide Youth Homelessness Service as well as our own, purpose designed supports.

If you or someone you know needs assistance, please call us on freecall 1800 807 364.

You can visit Trace-A-Place between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday.

For support outside of business hours, or for people over the age of 25 years, please call the Homelessness Gateway Service on freecall 1800 003 308.
