Federal Member for Wide Bay Warren Truss today advised of
$208,060 in Australian Government funding for the
Cherbourg-Murgon Reconnect program for 2012-13.
Mr Truss said the funding supports early intervention to help young people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, and their families. Reconnect also builds community capacity to address youth homelessness.
“This funding assists the efforts and the effectiveness of the Cherbourg-Murgon Reconnect service and the people who deliver the program, providing support services for young people and their families,” Mr Truss said.
“The program helps to reconnect young people at risk with community, employment and social services to give them a better future.”
