M arist Youth Care (MYC) is a not-for-profit organisation focused on helping at risk young people, their families and communities. MYC was established in 1896 and now has 334 staff assisted by 78 volunteers.
MYC has developed into one of the largest service providers for youth at risk in Australia today. We provide services to over 4,000 young people and their families every year. Each night, we accommodate over 600 young people in our Residential and Settlement Support Services.
Our services are designed to help young people who are homeless, or who are at risk of homelessness or are living away from their families. Providing a bed is only part of the solution. We also focus on addressing the issues faced by young people and we help them develop skills for independent living in the future.
"MYC has a belief in each young person which teaches them to believe in themselves"
