Building hope for young people

On 07 July 2017, a special dinner was held to raise funds towards the building and construction of the Hope Street youth refuge in Melton.

Thank you to all our event attendees who enjoyed a fun, construction-themed night with delicious food and great entertainment at the Sofitel Melbourne On Collins.  We also acknowledge the event sponsors who provided the many great prizes won at our auction, raffle and silent auction, and our official event photographer, Zheljana Peric, who took the fantastic photos that can be seen in our photo album.

Reconciliation Week Community Day

Kirrip Aboriginal Corporation and Hope Street came together on Saturday 27 May 2017 to celebrate National Reconciliation Week with the community.

National Reconciliation Week occurs every 27 May – 03 June and commemorates two important milestones in Australia's reconciliation journey: the 1967 referendum and the High Court Mabo decision.  It is also an opportunity for everyone to learn more about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history and culture.

Hope to Home in Whittlesea

FEATURED PROJECT: 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 project 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 project partner and support at risk young people and young families.
