Page 2 of 8

3 Youth Hope is intended to result in young people at risk of significant harm being able to stay safely at home and not entering the out-of-home-care system. Success will be evaluated and measured by a reduction in rereporting to Community Services and reduced entry of participating young people into the out-of-home-care system. Target Groups: 1.
