• 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.

    ‘MAN to MAN’ shows the story of five men and their journey through the 2016 Sons of the West Program.

    The Western Bulldogs Community Foundation have partnered with Melton City Council to deliver the Sons of the West which is a FREE health program for men aged 18 and over living, working and recreating in Victoria’s west. It consists of programs aimed to improve men's mental health and physical health through a series of workshops, presentations, events and experiences. The ‘Premiership Season’ is the second of three programs run over the calendar year.

    An entertaining early morning event awakens hope for young people.

    On Thursday 26 May 2016, Tabcorp Park Melton, in partnership with Hope Street Youth and Family Services, hosted a fantastic Corporate Breakfast MC’ed by Rob Auber. The Corporate Breakfast provided the business community with the opportunity to learn more about how homelessness affects young people and the wider community, and how their business/company could assist Hope Street to build a new supported crisis accommodation centre for young people experiencing homelessness in Melton.

    The YAC is a committee consisting of young people between the ages of 12 and 25 who are passionate about being leaders within their local community of Melton.

  • Federal Budget 2014-15

    Sector briefing

    The Australian Federal Government's 2014-15 Budget released by the Treasurer on Tuesday 13 May 2014 did not grant some of the wishes expressed in Homelessness Australia’s submission on Budget priorities, eg by establishing a long-term Affordable Housing Growth Fund or abolishing housing-related tax concessions that benefit mainly higher income earners. 

  • Strategic Planning Day 2013

    Strategic and Business Planning is the “big picture” of the organisation and its future direction.  Strategic Planning allows stakeholders of Hope Street Youth and Family Services to examine the progress of the organisation, its vision mission, purpose, philosophy and aims and objectives as well as the strategic environment in which we operate.

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.
