Summary

"Reconnect has been in operation since 1999 as a national early intervention program aimed at reducing youth homelessness. An Australian Government initiative, it seeks to reconnect young people (aged 12 to 18 years) who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, with their families, education, employment and community. The program's precursor was the Youth Homelessness Pilot Program, managed by the Prime Ministerial Youth Homeless Taskforce, whose final report, Putting Families in the Picture, was published in 1998. I'm looking at the future' is a quote from one of the young people surveyed during the Reconnect evaluation, and is one of many such statements made by the program's young clients. The circumstances of young people using Reconnect services led many of them to express hopelessness when Reconnect first came into their lives. In contrast, by the end of contact with Reconnect the majority of young people had significantly more optimistic outlooks. I'm looking at the future, in outlining the key findings of the Reconnect evaluation, helps to explain this change."
