A coalition of more than 60 organisations, including Melton’s Hope Street Youth and Family Services, Council to Homeless Persons and Youth Affairs Council Victoria has thrown its support behind ending youth homelessness in Victoria. Australian Institute of Health and Welfare figures indicate that of the 8830 young people that approached homelessness services in Victoria last year, 5060 were turned away.

The Honourable Danny Pearson MP, Minister for Housing (as well as Assistant Treasurer, Minister for Regulatory Reform, and Minister for Government Services), and Steve McGhie MP Melton, Victorian Labor Member for the Melton District, visited the First Response Youth Refuge in Melton on Wednesday 12 October 2022. 

Donna Bennett, CEO, and Andrew Nette, Board Chair, were delighted to host the tour. The highlight for all was hearing from young people about their experience of living at Hope Street services and being supported by Hope Street staff. It was clear that the leading purpose-built facility assisted young people on their journey of safety and recovery from trauma and homelessness.

On Monday 10 October 2022, the Hope Street team caught up with Executive Officer Peter Webster and the fabulous team at Kirrip Aboriginal Corporation for a yarn and to share the Kinya Lerrk Acknowledgment plaques that are being installed at all of Hope Street’s sites.

Designed by Aboriginal visual artists, these beautiful plaques celebrate Aboriginal culture and acknowledge the Aboriginal People as the Traditional Owners of the land.

Hope to Home in Whittlesea

FEATURED PILOT PROGRAM: Hope to Home in Whittlesea

Many young people face obstacles when trying to secure stable accommodation due to no rental history, lack of affordable housing, and no employment to sustain rental leases.  The Hope to Home in Whittlesea pilot program will address these issues by:

  • Facilitating the transition of up to 30 young people (and their children) from the Hope Street in Whittlesea program or Whittlesea Housing into 1 and 2 bedroom units
  • Providing case management once they secure private rental of these units
  • Helping these young people maintain their tenancy, employment, education and training, and community connections
  • Engaging the support of community stakeholders including local businesses to address barriers contributing to youth homelessness

Please contact us if you would like to become a partner and support at risk young people and young families.
