This Program provides assistance to young people and young families within a case management framework. Dedicated Case Management positions operate to provide one-to-one, client-centred, holistic and coordinated assistance together with the young person or young family.
It is important that young people identify their own goals, and staff empower young people to develop their own support plans to achieve goals using their own skills and abilities combined with Hope Street resources. Assistance is provided in either maintaining and/or accessing short, medium and/or long term housing and other services such as educational and employment programs, health and wellbeing, living skills, financial, legal, mental health, parenting and children.
