Christmas gift wrapping to support Hope Street

This Christmas, Woodgrove Shopping Centre is partnering with City of Melton Youth Services in a charity gift wrapping service to support Hope Street's work with young people and young families.

From 18 December through to Christmas Eve outside Kmart at the Woodgrove Shopping Centre, gifts are being beautifully wrapped by the Youth Services team, who offer a huge range of programs and events for young people between the ages of 12-25 in the City of Melton. This includes drop-in programs offering a safe space to hang out, meet new friends, engage in fun activities and find out about other services for youth. The City of Melton Youth Services is committed to ensuring the safety and wellbeing of all young people.

Thanks to contributions from government, business and the local community, Hope Street recently announced a new Youth Refuge, the Hope Street First Response Youth Service in Melton. The initiative means young people at risk of or experiencing homelessness will no longer need to leave the Melton area if they require supported crisis accommodation, allowing them to retain their school and social support networks.

All proceeds of the charity gift wrapping service will go to Hope Street.

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.
