Can We Help?

Throughout January 2017, the City of Wagga Wagga developed a community awareness initiative geared at vulnerable young people (with support from Mission Australia). You may notice these eye catching posters on bus shelters across the city, aimed at addressing four critical areas facing our youth today. These include homelessness, mental health, food relief and disability.

They provide young people with easy access to information about a range of community services, community groups and government organisations, who can provide assistance in these four areas.

*Updated on 14th September 2017- Please note: As of 12th September 2017, Wagga Wagga City Council were informed that the contact details for Micah House located on the food services poster have now changed. They have merged with Edel Quinn Shelter and now share the same contact information: (02) 5942 3555*
