  • New creative space for youth

    StreetSmart Australia is helping to provide a place for homeless and at risk young people to explore and develop their creative and life skills.

    Hope Street is thrilled to be a recipient of one of StreetSmart Australia’s 2016 CafeSmart Community Small Grants.  Adjacent to Hope Street in Melton is a Community Centre which is currently used as an activity and learning space. The grant of $1,250 will enable Hope Street to rejuvenate the Centre into a more youth friendly and welcoming environment for artistic expression, workshops and life skills education.

  • UPDATE: Future homelessness funding in doubt

    Homelessness sector leaders are calling on the Federal Government to renew their commitment to homelessness funding beyond June 2017.

    On 09 December, it was announced that the National Partnership Agreement on Homelessness will be extended for 12 months, with some indexation.  This has been welcomed by over 200 community organisations and 40,000 individuals who lobbied Prime Minister Turnbull in support of homelessness and family violence services.
     
    Council to Homeless Persons (CHP) CEO and Homelessness Australia Chairperson, Jenny Smith, says:
    A 12-month extension for 180 critically important services means that 80,000 Australians experiencing crisis related to homelessness and family violence will be supported. That is good news and I welcome Minister Porter’s recommitment to the National Partnership Agreement on Homelessness.
