About Us

Who are we?

Picabeen is a multi-service hub that not only provides targeted support services to address the needs of vulnerable people but is also able to accommodate other community members with the provision of universal community services.  Youth workers provide a range of support options for young people at risk of disengaging from family, education and community. Support options include case management (individual support and advocacy) and a range of prevention and early intervention activities.
