Youth Housing and Reintegration Service (YHARS) and After Care

This publication was produced prior to the current government.

The Youth Housing and Reintegration Service including After Care Service (YHARS) provides brokerage services and a coordinated and integrated case management response to the complex needs of young people aged 12-21 years who are homeless or at-risk of homelessness.

The Guidelines for Service Delivery: Youth Housing and Reintegration Service including After Care Service (PDF, 1.8 MB) guides funded service providers in the delivery of this service to young people.

The guide outlines service provider roles and responsibilities, principles for information sharing and relationship management with government and  non-government  agencies  involved  in  the  delivery  of services to YHARS clients.

The guidelines also outline referral processes and criteria, principles for case management, accommodation support and working with young people, the administration of brokerage funds, record keeping and conflict resolution.

The guidelines were revised in October 2014 to incorporate the revised departmental structures and operating guidelines.
