I have been working in the community services field, across quite varied environments, for 7 years which has proven to be both challenging and rewarding. These areas have been composed of working with young people in correctional settings, the Education First Youth Foyer model and now as a case manager at Hope Street's Brunswick West Youth Refuge.
The team at Hope Street are a delight to work with as are our clients. Supporting our clients to transition into safe medium and long term housing is extremely rewarding, especially as young people develop their independence skills on their path to empowerment whilst achieving positive outcomes. It is fantastic to be part of an organisation that has retained its independence from the larger organisations and achieves such wonderful outcomes for young people experiencing complex and varied barriers to their life goals.
