Organisation Jenny House (1994 - )
- Anglican, Care Provider, Non-denominational and Youth Welfare Service
Jenny House provides safe, supported transitional accommodation to young women
who are homeless or at imminent risk of homelessness.
[Taken from the Western Australian guide Signposts:]
Jenny House, which has been relocated over the years, is named for its initial sponsor, the Jenny Craig weight loss organisation.
The Jenny House moved to its current location in Kewdale in 1996. Jenny House has funding from the Commonwealth/State funded Supported Accommodation Assistance Program in 2002. [For notes on this program see the section on SAAP at the beginning of Signposts].
In its service agreement with the Department in 2002 Jenny House was described as targeting young women 16-25 (with or without children) who are in need of safe, supported, affordable, transitional accommodation. The program allows the young women to live in a semi-independent environment, but with 24 hour on call support by professional staff. The service actively works to move young women to independent accommodation within 12 months. (Service Agreement with
the Department for Community Development).
Parkerville Children's Home has its own entry in Signposts, and this should be consulted as it gives more information about the approach taken.
Case records for young people placed by the Department may reside
with the Department for Community Development.
Parkerville Children's Home may also hold records.
While access to records is restricted to protect the privacy of
individuals, people are encouraged to enquire.
