The George Naim Khattar Foundation was founded in 2011. In that time, the GNK Foundation has raised funds for youth and community centres, cardiac research, autism programmes and a new eldercare heath and residential centre.
THE HOME SOON GRANT PROGRAMME
The GNK Foundation will proudly support YOUNGCARE in 2018
Youngcare recognises that too many young Australians with high care needs are being left behind; living in institutionalised housing like aged care and hospital rooms. It is an issue that spans the corners of the country and yet is so close to home.
28,000 young people are seeking a suitable place to call “home”.
The GNK Foundation aims to raise vital funds for Youngcare’s High Care Grants programme to assist in providing suitable housing and grants to ensure all young people with high care needs can remain at home with their loved ones or transition into their very own home.
Bringing young people home, at last
One of Youngcare’s vital grants programmes, the Home Soon Grant, supports young people with high care needs to make the transition out of inappropriate housing, moving and back into their homes or to an age-appropriate housing alternative.
The grants are available for individuals aged between 18 and 65 who are currently living in inappropriate housing such as a hospital, aged care or a rehabilitation centre and who wish to return home or to supported accommodation.
The Youngcare Home Soon Grants provide funding between $5,000 -$20,000 (up to $50,000 in exceptional circumstances) for funding of eligible equipment, home modifications and services such as respite or in-home care. Download the Home Soon Information Booklet here
