Lighthouse Homes

Lighthouse Homes are dedicated homes where young people live alongside Lighthouse carers, supported by the wider Lighthouse Care Team.

Our first homes were established more than 30 years ago and are carefully designed to be safe, welcoming and nurturing spaces. The type of support offered in our homes, which are spread throughout Melbourne, is targeted towards the needs of the children and young people living in them.

“This floor, this warm carpet, this room that has a door I can close ... is all I need,” Asan told the carers. “This is the best I have ever known. You can put another person in that bed.”

Asan

“learning to live with structure and allowing someone else to care for me was hard”, but for the first time, in a long time, she was safe.

Bianca and baby Kaylan's story

Lighthouse has given Dylan a ‘safe place’ – somewhere to call home. He has developed strong bonds with members of our Care team and prefers to hang out with his Carers and other Lighthouse community members rather than being involved with negative influences.
