St John's Youth Services Helping young people break the cycle of homelessness
Our major charity since 2010
Credit Union SA is a proud supporter of St John’s Youth Services, which strives to improve the lives of the most disadvantaged young people in our community through the provision of emergency accommodation, child support services and transition-to-independent-living programs.
St John’s receives over 1,000 referrals a year and has accommodated a total of over 7,500 individual young people and almost 1,000 small dependent children. Some of these young people stayed in the services only once, but over half return within three months and many face such overwhelming barriers that the services provided by St John’s become their de-facto family.

Donate your DVDs and Board Games
During the month of March, Credit Union SA is collecting on behalf of young people staying at St. Johns Youth Services accomodation youth110.
youth110 is looking for donations of board games and DVDs, suitable for young people aged 16-21.
They'd especially like TV series, comedies and anime!
To donate, please take your items to your local Credit Union SA branch!
