On 8 May 2019 Hope Street was awarded a cheque for $5000 from the City of Melton’s Community Grants Program. The funding will be used to purchase emergency accommodation for young people experiencing homelessness in Melton.

Olivia Myeza, Hope Street’s Business Development and Partnerships Manager, attended the cheque handover ceremony and is pictured here with the Mayor of Melton, Cr Bob Turner.

Hope Street is deeply grateful for the ongoing partnership and support from the City of Melton, and we are proud to be a recipient of the Community Grants Program.

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.
