Home Is Where My Heart Is

Home Is Where My Heart Is was established in 2008 and has been supported by the Commissioner for Children and Young People since 2011.

The program provides young people who have experienced homelessness with an opportunity to express themselves and have their views heard in the community via a public photographic exhibition.

As part of the office's support of the program, the Commissioner hosts a morning tea to speak to participating young people about their experiences and views about homelessness.
