How We Help

Taldumande supports vulnerable and homeless children and young people aged 12-21, and their families. Based in Northern Sydney and the Northern Beaches, we support young people from all across Sydney.


Crisis Accommodation Program

If you’re homeless, sleeping rough, couch surfing or think you might be soon, you’re not alone. Our refuge is a safe place with 24/7 support, where you can stay until you get back on your feet. Just call us on 02 9460 3777 to let us know you need somewhere to stay.


Young Offenders Intervention Program

This program supports homeless young people who are under the supervision of Juvenile Justice and is delivered in partnership with Juvenile Justice NSW and Marist180. It provides up to a month’s crisis accommodation alongside specialist intensive casework support to assist the young person to find secure, stable accommodation and to have a better chance to remain offence free.


Semi-Independent Housing Program

Whether you’ve just left our crisis refuge or ready for a bit of independence, our shared houses give you a safe place to stay while you’re at school, studying or working. It’s a great way to practice living on your own, with the support of caring and professional staff who are there in the evenings and overnight to keep you safe.


Supported-Independent Housing Program

When you’re almost ready to make it on your own, you can move into our independent housing. You’ll either live in a unit by yourself, or in a unit or house with someone else, with no supervision from our staff at night. This will help you get used to living on your own and build your confidence, so one day you’ll feel ready to start renting your own place.



In addition to our accommodation programs, we offer youth community services that offer practical assistance and support, to help young people and families achieve their short-term and long-term goals.

Intensive Family Support Program

This program provides specialist case management support to children and young people aged 12-15 years and their families during a crisis. We aim to help preserve family relationships and offer intensive, flexible and practical support with the intention of reducing family breakdown.


After Care Program

This program supports young people in the community once they have left our accommodation services.

Outreach Program

Our Outreach Program provides direct support to young people aged 12-21 years to find accommodation with other service. These young people are seeking assistance in maintaining or moving to stable accommodation.

SHS Support Services

This program is delivered in partnership with Mission Australia providing a range of supports to young people under the age of 25. This includes case management, counselling, referrals, advocacy and tenancy support.
