YHES House provides holistic health support services for youth and young parents on the Gold Coast, including individual support, case management, counselling, hygiene and nutrition services, welfare and crisis support.

One of the fastest growing communities in Queensland, the Gold Coast has a housing stress rate that is 12% higher than the state average, and of the 1,500 people who are sleeping rough around 25% are under 25.

To help improve the health and wellbeing of homeless and 'at risk' young people in the region, nib foundation is assisting YHES House to establish the My Accommodation Pathway (MAP) program.

The program aims to increase the potential for 'at risk' youth to establish and maintain accommodation by empowering them to make positive choices, increase their knowledge and skills to live independently, and to establish and maintain accommodation.
