Hope Street is providing comfort for young people and their children.

 

Providing dignity and comfort for young people and their children who are striving to secure a safe place to call home with high quality and beautifully designed linen. Hope Street is doing important work in the community to provide a safe place to sleep and receive support to young people at risk of homelessness and donations provide much needed resources as a part of the process to positive change.  

 

Thank you, Sheridan, and StreetSmart Australia for the SleepSmart donation of these 42 sets of brightly designed and quality linen ‘sleep kits’ for the young people who reach out to Hope Street Youth and Family Services via the Hope Street specialist programs.  

"At Sheridan, we've seen time and time again how transformative true rest can be on an individual. But not everyone is lucky enough to have somewhere safe to sleep — which is why this initiative is so important. Together with StreetSmart, the simple comforts of home are provided to tens of thousands across the country — while providing support to community organisations doing important work."- Andrew Seargean, Group General Manager of Sheridan Australia

“Being able to rest in a safe environment with quality linen is psychologically important for a young person to decompress and begin to develop a sense of belonging whilst they turn their minds to achieving essential day to day living goals. It allows a young person to feel comforted in a space, bedroom, that is theirs for a short-while.” Donna Bennett, Chief Executive Officer.

 

SleepSafe supports grassroots, community-based organisations by providing localised grants to shelters and vulnerable support services. SleepSafe believe that housing is a basic human right and raising funds for local emergency accommodation services and bedding products is integral to ensuring that all Australians have a safe place to sleep.

“A safe place to sleep is an important part of being comforted. For young people to have quality linen from Sheridan that is bright and beautifully designed ensures they feel valued. This ensures young people have a sense of belonging in a space that allows them to rest and begin to feel that they can focus on other basic areas of their life.” -  Donna Bennett, Chief Executive Officer.

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.
