Intensive Family Support
Through our Intensive Family Support service, we work closely with parents to help them get the skills and support they need to care for and protect their children, helping families work well.
Functional Family Therapy—Child Welfare
Our Functional Family Therapists work with families over four to seven months to help them function in more positive and productive ways. This program addresses factors that have contributed to families being at risk of child safety intervention.
Through Youthlink, we work with young people who are having trouble with housing, family, school, work or friends to develop and implement plans that get lives back on track. We work specifically with young people aged 10 to 21, providing practical help tailored to each young person’s needs and goals.
Our financial counsellors help people understand their money and bills. With their assistance, people learn how to negotiate better finance deals so they can sort out their finances even when they are facing unemployment, sickness or family problems.
Based at Slacks Creek, our community legal centre offers a selection of its services from Jimboomba. The centre provides one-off free legal advice appointments concerning family, domestic violence, civil and criminal law matters. YFS Legal also represents clients aged 10 to 25 years who find themselves needing help with criminal law matters.
ParentsNext is for Logan parents of young children. We help parents prepare for future employment and gain confidence, skills and knowledge so they are ready to join the workforce when their children start school.
We also partner with other community organisations to deliver specialist services at Jimboomba including:
- alcohol and other drugs counselling (with Metro South Health)
- trauma counselling for victims of domestic and family violence (with the Logan Women’s Health and Wellbeing Centre).
Beaudesert Domestic and Family Violence service
Extending to the Jimboomba, Yarrabilba and Flagstone districts
Through a partnership with Beaucare, we offer counselling, court support and home safety upgrades for people experiencing domestic and family violence, and specialised counselling for children affected by domestic violence.
