Out of Home Care

Out of Home Care provides care for children and young people from 0-18 years of age who are not able to live with their own families.

The program consists of Foster Care and Residential Care Services located on both the Central Coast and Upper North Shore of Sydney.

These services provide short term to long term accommodation and foster care placements as well as intake and assessment  and transition to independent living for young people transitioning from care. 

The Out of Home Care  program has included a specialised high needs residential service for children under 12 years old whom require specific therapeutic interventions. The underpinning goal for this service is stabilisatio to facilitate restoration to family or long term foster care placements.

The personal growth and development of many of the children and young people in our care has been interrupted by significant and often traumatic issues in their lives. CatholicCare Out of Home Care services provide many of the supports around health, education, living skills, and community involvement that enable children and young people to develop into happy, safe and well adolescents and grow into responsible adults and parents of their own children.

Referrals to CatholicCare Out of Home Care services can only be made through NSW Community Services.
