HYPA provides services and support to assist young people in securing a safe, stable home environment. Our services are designed to address differing challenges faced by young people when needing to find alternative living arrangements, from emergency or crisis accommodation to preparing for independent living and ongoing stability and security.
Trace-A-Place is a service aimed specifically at young people aged between 15-25 in South Australia who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. This includes young parents with accompanying children.
Referred to as the Youth Gateway to crisis accommodation, Trace-A-Place offers a combination of services, including referrals to emergency and longer term youth specific housing, provision of information on sourcing and accessing safe accommodation options, and general support and guidance on dealing with the experience of homelessness.

Get-A-Place specialises in assisting young people aged up to 25 who are entering the independent housing market for the first time and have limited experience and understanding of what is involved and how to go about it.
Get-A-Place guides young people through the process of identifying the right accommodation for their needs, understanding the different housing options available, clarifying tenants’ rights and responsibilities, applying for a rental property and knowing what’s required for ongoing maintenance of the tenancy.
A range of publications, group programs and advisory services is offered, including House Hunt which runs twice a week from the YouthStreet Library at 80 Currie Street and is designed to help young people search for suitable accommodation and apply with prospective landlords.
Get-A-Place can be contacted on 08 8405 8580 for more information.
HYPA Housing provides a stepping stone towards independent housing for young people aged 17-25 who are finding it difficult to access and afford private rental housing. It is an affordable housing option that supports young people in developing their independence and pursue their personal, vocational and educational goals.
HYPA Housing currently consists of 39 self-contained apartments in various locations across the Adelaide metropolitan area. For young people to be eligible for HYPA Housing, they need to be willing to engage in a course of study, an apprenticeship or traineeship or obtain employment. An on-site caretaker provides positive role modelling and help in maintaining the apartments, while case management support is provided by a HYPA Housing Case Manager.
For more information please contact 08 8405 8540.
