Ecodynamics builds bikes and strong communities

Ecodyamics team build bikes for young people

Hope Street is delighted to have received several bicycles built by Ecodynamics for our young people and young families in Brunswick and Melton.

On 21 February 2018, our Corporate Partner Ecodynamics held their annual Group Strategy Day at the Abbotsford Convent. As part of Ecodynamic’s Strategic Plan, the group is implementing an extensive Grassroots Program and has partnered with Hope Street to assist wherever possible in helping disadvantaged youth and young families.

Consisting of almost 100 employees across four different sites, the Group Strategy Day plays an important role in bringing Ecodynamic’s staff together. During the day, employees undertook a team building exercise designed to foster team spirit, and what better way to do so than by doing something special for Hope Street.

The employees were split into groups and were given a challenge to build 16 bicycles, varying from adults to kids sizes. These bikes were then donated to Hope Street’s Brunswick and Melton branches for use by our residents.

Ecodynamics have also kindly agreed to assist us with the landscaping requirements for our Hope Street First Response Youth Service in Melton by offering their services and materials for the build. We are grateful to Ecodynamics for their support and look forward to working with them for many years to come.

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.
