Oasis Transitional Accommodation Services (OTAS) is a semi-independent accommodation program. Young people aged 16-24 are invited to refer. We ask that young people have capacity and intention to engage in training, education and/or employment. This could be one or a combination of the following: study, work, training, or a program addressing mental health, drugs and/or alcohol, and living skills.
Casework support is provided alongside each accommodation option. OTAS empower choice. Young people participating in the program set their own goals. The casework involves forward planning to help young people create the future they want for themselves. Common support areas are: employment, education, budgeting and finances, health and wellbeing, living skills, and community connections.
OTAS have three different accommodation options, which are below:
PIF House in Redfern is a share-house accommodation. Young people have their own rooms and they share a kitchen, laundry, and living area.
PIF House is a joint project between Oasis Youth Support Network, Property Industry Foundation, the City of Sydney and Ernst Heine Foundation.
In partnership with St George Community Housing, Oasis Youth Support Network provides semi-independent studio apartments in the Sydney suburb of Darlinghurst for young people aged 16-24 years old.
Francis St first opened for Oasis young people in 2006.
In partnership with community housing providers, Oasis Youth Support Network provides accommodation options for young people wanting to take the next step in their journey towards independent living. Properties are located around Sydney’s suburbs. Young people have access to casework support as they build confident to enter the private rental market.
