Reviving hope

Sign of Hope at Woodgrove Shopping Centre

A new installation at Woodgrove Shopping Centre is offering a sign of hope to vulnerable young people and young families in Melton.

Woodgrove Shopping Centre has been a proud supporter of Hope Street since 2015. Their partnership with Hope Street strives to continue supporting young people experiencing, or at risk of, homelessness, through fundraising events and awareness raising initiatives.

In partnership with Hope Street, Woodgrove developed the Sign of Hope display to share young people's experiences of homelessness and how Hope Street responds to their needs and empowers them to overcome disadvantage and to achieve their hopes and future goals.

A better future for young people, their children and community without homelessness is achievable with a compassionate community approach. The support from partners like Woodgrove and the wider Melton community has been overwhelmingly generous and inspirational.

Speaking with Star Weekly's Esther Lauaki, Hope Street CEO Donna Bennett said that:

It has enhanced the assistance we are able to provide to young people in our new programs in Melton. Young people and young families of Melton have their own hopes and dreams for the future. It’s important for agencies like Hope Street and the wider community to collectively encourage young people to achieve the amazing things they are capable of.

Hope Street thanks Woodgrove Shopping Centre for their tremendous ongoing assistance with the promotion of our work with homeless young people and families and, in particular, with our Melton First Response campaign.

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.
