Director and Chair of Committee
I believe that Hope Street is doing a fantastic job for young people and their families. I want to be part of expanding and improving our services and those of the homelessness systems for young people everywhere.
I am a long term local resident of the City of Moreland and first knew about Hope Street when I worked in Moreland. I was impressed with the strong reputation of Hope Street in responding to young people who experience homeless. Years later I was interested in contributing to my local community and immediately thought of Hope Street. I know Hope Street cares deeply for children and young people. Hope Street is a well organised organisation that lives and breathes its Mission.
