Living life with hope

Living life with hope video

Hope Street is thrilled to reveal our very own anthem, an original song composed just for Hope Street, called Live Life With Hope.  A music video has been produced using the song and recent photographs taken of current Hope Street clients, to provide a glimpse into what being young and homeless looks like in Melbourne in 2019.

Please share the video below to spread the word about Hope Street’s work in responding to youth homelessness.

We are deeply grateful to Bettina Spivakovsky from Upfront Events, for writing this song for Hope Street. Bettina is a member of Hope Street’s Corporate Committee - a group of volunteers from the corporate sector who are advocates and supporters for Hope Street. We also thank and acknowledge Shannyn Higgins, a professional photographer who spent time with Hope Street in January 2019 photographing some of the young people and young families who are currently living in Hope Street refuges or residential units due to experiencing homelessness.

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.
