Hope Street Young People

For Hope Street, 2018-2019 was a year for building hope, both literally and metaphorically. On Wednesday 20 November, we celebrated the achievements of Hope Street’s teams, young people and the partners and supporters behind our impact.

StreetSmart Australia grant - thank you

StreetSmart Australia is helping to provide a place for homeless and at risk young people to explore and develop their creative and life skills.

Hope Street is thrilled to be a recipient of one of StreetSmart Australia’s 2016 CafeSmart Community Small Grants.  Adjacent to Hope Street in Melton is a Community Centre which is currently used as an activity and learning space. The grant of $1,250 will enable Hope Street to rejuvenate the Centre into a more youth friendly and welcoming environment for artistic expression, workshops and life skills education.

NPAH Campaign to save future homelessness funding

Homelessness sector leaders are calling on the Federal Government to renew their commitment to homelessness funding beyond June 2017.

On 09 December, it was announced that the National Partnership Agreement on Homelessness will be extended for 12 months, with some indexation.  This has been welcomed by over 200 community organisations and 40,000 individuals who lobbied Prime Minister Turnbull in support of homelessness and family violence services.
 
Council to Homeless Persons (CHP) CEO and Homelessness Australia Chairperson, Jenny Smith, says:
A 12-month extension for 180 critically important services means that 80,000 Australians experiencing crisis related to homelessness and family violence will be supported. That is good news and I welcome Minister Porter’s recommitment to the National Partnership Agreement on Homelessness.

The highlight of our AGM will be a garden tour at our site in Melton (an initiative in partnership with Bunnings) and a performance by Hope Street clients in partnership with the Gold Stars.

We hope that you can join us in celebrating the achievements of young people, our teams and the community.

Youth

Would you like to know more about the types of programs and services available to support young people and young families who are homeless* or at risk of homelessness and residing in the North/Western Region of Metropolitan Melbourne?  If so please join us at Hope Street's AGM.

MicrophoneOn Friday 01 November 2013, Kevin Andrews MP delivered his first major speech on housing, at the National Housing Conference in Adelaide, since his appointment as the Minister for Social Services. 

It is with great pleasure that we announce the date and details of the Hope Street Youth and Family Services Incorporated 2011-2012 Annual General Meeting (AGM). 

To celebrate the third year of operation of our Hope Street Melton site, and in support of the local community, this year's Annual General Meeting (AGM) will be held at a venue in Melton, Victoria.

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.
