Services covering the City of Greater Dandenong, City of Casey and Cardinia Shire


Whitelion is a voluntary service. We take referrals directly from young people, their family, or statutory services and other community organizations. If you are aged 10 - 25 and live in one of our catchment areas we may be able to provide you with support.

Whitelion can help if you: 
  • Live in out of home care,
  • Are worried by your risk taking behaviour,
  • At risk of/experiencing homelessness,
  • Have been to court, are on a community order or in custody,
  • Have stopped attending school and would like help to return, or look for alternative options,
  • Would like support with job opportunities.

Whitelion Southern Homeless Youth Assistance Program (SHYAP)

Whitelion's Southern Homeless Youth Assistance Program provides outreach-based case management and brief intervention support for young people (12-25) who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, living in the Frankston, Casey, Dandenong and Mornington Peninsula local government areas. We can help by connecting young people to housing options, assisting to stabilise housing placements, assisting with family reunification, and connecting young people to mental health services, family violence services, income support and other priorities identified by the young person.

Southern Community Integration Program (CIP)

The Community Integration Program (CIP) works with young people in out-of-home care (i.e. residential, foster or kinship care) to explore a new activity, sport or interest area within their community, with the support of a volunteer. These links create connections between young people and their community to reduce isolation and disconnection by increasing social skills and self-confidence. Often, the mentor/mentee-type of relationship can endure after the 12 month program has finished.
