TINOCA is a crisis accommodation service in Perth’s northern suburbs for young people aged 15-19 who are experiencing homelessness or are unable to stay in their family home. Residents are able to stay anywhere from one night up to three months, depending on their situation.
During their stay young people are provided with meals, warm showers, toiletries and support. A Youth Worker is on-site with the residents at all times. They support each young person to address their current needs, develop independent living skills, access education or employment, and to develop a plan for securing longer term accommodation. When appropriate, residents are also encouraged to access the Drug Education and Support Worker who is available onsite to help young people with their drug and alcohol issues.
TINOCA can accommodate up to six young people at a time. To make a referral, call 9307 4520. Referrals are accepted 24 hours a day. Any referrals from a third party must be made with consent from the young person.
