My Hope Street Big Fat Fundraiser

Fantastic fundraiser helps to build better futures for young people!

The My Hope Street Big Fat Fundraiser was held on Friday 24 June 2016 at Hellenic Republic in Kew, and was proudly organised by the Hope Street Corporate Committee with special thanks to Upfront Events. Guests were treated to a banquet of sumptuous Greek food, delectable wines, live and silent auctions and great prizes. The entertainment consisted of bouzouki players, a keyboard musician and a renowned Melbourne comedian.

Hope Street would like to thank our event sponsors and the many other individuals, businesses, and organisations involved in making the evening such an enjoyable and successful event. A big thank you to Clive Scott, General Manager of Sofitel Melbourne On Collins for bringing so much vibrancy as the event's MC and to Hollie Johnston as special guest speaker.

In total, just over $16,000 was raised which will go directly towards establishing the Hope Street First Response Youth Service in Melton. The youth centre will be able to provide safe, stable and supportive accommodation for up to 100 young people and families per year.

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.
