Everyone should have a safe place to call home.

Bridge It, based in Melbourne aims to break the cycle of homelessness and increase connection and belonging.

The Cocoon Residential service is for young people who identify as female and who are exiting out-of-home care or experiencing homelessness. Bridge It provides affordable housing as well as wrap around support including life and living skills development, therapies and community building activities.

Bridge It has big plans to make the world a better place for everyone.

“We focus on creating homes, not just houses. A home is somewhere safe, comfortable, and welcoming. It is more than a roof over your head; a home is a sanctuary. How it feels can impact the rest of your life.”

Carla Raynes, Founder / CEO
