Hope Street’s Hope to Home in Melton program has enabled four young people to find a place they can call home. The young people are the first two couples from the program to be moving out of homelessness and into affordable, long term rental accommodation.
In partnership with Gandel Philanthropy and Raine and Horne Melton, Hope Street actively supports at risk young people to access sustainable private housing by providing subsidised rent, building confidence, life skills and links to education, training and employment, and fostering enduring family and community connections.
The four young people are eager to move into their new homes and re-establish their lives.
Interviewed by Star Weekly newspaper’s Sumeyya Ilanbey, Hope to Home Community Integration Facilitator, Katie Mochan, says:
What they’ve gone through hasn’t been particularly fun for them, so they’re grateful that there is support for them.

Without services like ours, you would have more homeless young people.
