This powerful music video portrays some of the brave young people (aged 16 to 25 years old) who are currently being supported by Hope Street, and provides a glimpse into what being young and homeless looks like in Melbourne in 2019. Please share it to spread the word about Hope Street’s work in responding to youth homelessness.
We are deeply grateful to Bettina Spivakovsky from Upfront Events, for writing this song for Hope Street. Bettina is a member of Hope Street’s Corporate Committee - a group of volunteers from the corporate sector who are advocates and supporters for Hope Street. We also thank and acknowledge Shannyn Higgins, a professional photographer who spent time with Hope Street in January 2019 photographing some of the young people and young families who are currently living in Hope Street refuges or residential units due to experiencing homelessness.
