LEGO brick buildings for Homelessness Week 2022

This week for Homelessness Week 2022, LEGO homes were placed on Parliament House steps in Melbourne to campaign for the needs of Victorian young people who don't have a stable home.

On 04 August 2022, a group of Hope Street Youth and Family Services staff headed down to Parliament House steps to be part of Melbourne City Mission's campaign for more youth housing options. LEGO brick houses took over Parliament House steps to keep the decision-makers focused on creating a pipeline of housing for at least 5,000 Victorian young people in need of a safe home.

Homelessness Week 2022: To end homelessness we need a plan. #HW2022

Hope to Home in Whittlesea

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.
