Hope Street and Woodgrove Shopping Centre partnership renewal

Woodgrove Shopping Centre’s support for young people experiencing or at risk of homelessness continues to strengthen through their renewed commitment to Hope Street Youth and Family Services. Our ongoing partnership is exciting and wonderful news.

Woodgrove Shopping Centre have provided tremendous assistance to Hope Street through the promotion of our work with homeless young people and families and, in particular, for our Melton First Response campaign to establish a vital, rapid response youth service in Melton. Based in Melton, Woodgrove’s concern for vulnerable youth in their local community has translated into action in collaboration with Hope Street, such as hosting the launch of the Responding to Youth Homelessness in Outer Growth Corridors: A research project in response to youth homelessness in Melton research report and having an awareness and fund raising feature in their Centre – the Tree of Hope. Woodgrove have raised almost $5000 through various activities and events for Hope Street’s work with homeless young persons.

Hope Street and Woodgrove are currently working together on a fantastic new promotion in February 2017 – stay tuned for details. This will add to the successful initiatives currently occurring within the Centre to further raise awareness of youth homelessness and increase the community’s knowledge of Hope Street’s work with young people and how we can all help.

Woodgrove are eager to surpass their support of Hope Street in the last financial year. Upcoming fundraising activities and events include:

  • September school holiday – ‘vote for sneakers’
  • Djerriwarrh Festival – selling of safe flame candles
  • Christmas Wrapping with Melton Valley Rotary
  • Santa’s arrival breakfast donations
  • Gift cards for Hope to Home in Melton clients to purchase items across Woodgrove stores.

Hope Street is excited about continuing our great partnership with Woodgrove and we are very thankful for their ongoing support.

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.
