The run for hope!

Fun run in action

Whether you’re walking, running or pushing a pram, every step in the City of Melton's 5km Fun Run/Walk is a step forward for young people at risk of or experiencing homelessness.

The run/walk will take place around the Toolern Creek Trail on Saturday 27 April 2019 and all proceeds will go to Hope Street's crisis accommodation facility in Melton.

Hope Street has a strong and collaborative partnership with the City of Melton in responding to the needs and challenges of youth homelessness in the local community.  We are extremely grateful for their ongoing support and commitment.

Please see the flyer for full event and registration details.

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.
