OUR HOUSE | YOUR COMMUNITY | WHAT IS ELEVATE?
Elevate is a therapeutic community committed to the restoration of life and dignity for young people who may have lost their way or been forgotten by the wider community.
Elevate is located in the Macedon Ranges, 1 hour from Melbourne. The location provides a serene environment for people to gain full control of their lives without surrounded peer pressures that can often influence people into making the wrong choices in life.
Working with People
Using the therapeutic value of peer-support and people sharing a journey of positive change we will be striving to create a community that has been constructed, cared for and molded by its community residents and for its community.
Who is eligible to enter Elevate?
Young people aged 18 – 25 who feel like they are not reaching their full potential or have issues with homelessness, alcohol and drug dependency, or young people exiting from the foster system that have no where to go can apply to enter the Elevate community.
Staff at Elevate will help people to help themselves, through supported accommodation and long-term peer-support we have seen that anyone from any background can bring about change for the better. We want people to follow the stages of growth that we know they are capable of and we want to support people through the process from the beginning to the rest of their lives.
