Reconciliation Week Community Day

National Reconciliation Week 2017

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.

The morning began at Hope Street in Melton with a Welcome to Country, flag raising ceremony and speeches.  A delicious lunch was then enjoyed by everyone at Kirrip House in Melton South.

Photos of the community day can be viewed in Kirrip Aboriginal Corporation's Reconciliation at Hope Street Youth and Family services Facebook Photo Album.

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.
