A group of friends, teenagers and young adults living with disability, regularly sharing a house for a few days or a week, supported by qualified people who know and understand them.
A house that is as familiar to them as their own home; that is welcoming, accessible, safe, fun!
A place where young people will create friendships and special memories together as they continue their journey to independence and opportunity.
That will be Helena’s House. The next chapter in the BestLife story.
A unique space where our young people will practice independent living skills and develop the emotional resilience needed to gradually transition from the family home to a life of their choice, with people they know.
BestLife aims to purchase or build a five-bedroom, two bathroom home in Brisbane, where we can create exactly the space our children need – accessible bathrooms, an open kitchen where meals can be prepared and shared, a physical therapy space, and a safe, sunny garden with room for a veggie patch.
Helena’s House will support our children’s essential next step on their path to a more independent life – one that is safe, secure and guaranteed.
Acquiring the house will:
• Eliminate the vulnerability and risks of renting
• Be capable of accommodating up to four young people for sleepovers ranging from one night to a week or more
• Enable expanded services
• Improve operational efficiency
It is not a permanent living option for just a few, rather it’s a central point where young people can develop and thrive.
It’s a big dream but we’re so excited to bring it to life.
