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.
