2014 AGM: Reflecting on our Achievements

2014 AGM attendees

It was our pleasure to report on the activities and achievements of our organisation for the 2013/2014 period at our Annual General Meeting held on Tuesday 09 December 2014.   The AGM was held in Melton at our Hope Street Community Hall and included several highlights.

  • Moreland City Council logoGarden Tours: Melton Bunnings generously supported the young people in our program to landscape their courtyards and shared vegetable garden.  Melton Bunnings provided the plants, garden stones, other materials and team members to work with young people to design and create their outdoor garden.  Hope Street provided garden tours to guests of our Annual General Meeting.   This is a tremendously positive demonstration of local business working with young people to achieve a practical, rewarding and lasting outcome.

    Hope Street presented the Melton Bunnings Complex Manager, David Drummy a framed Appreciation Certificate surrounded by photos from the garden project signed by all of the young people involved.

    Valerie Turner, who led the garden project initiative with her Melton Bunnings colleagues, joined the garden tours and presentation of the Appreciation Certificate.  
  • Performance by young people involved in the Hope Street Gold Stars Music Program:  The Moreland City Council awarded Hope Street in Brunswick a community grant to create a music program with young people in our youth refuge.  Under the guidance of Youth Residential Support Worker Kate Clarke, young people involved performed alongside renowned Indigenous Artist Monica Weightman in a spectacular performance.
  • Board nominations: The following Directors were nominated to the Board:
    • Judith Cooke
    • Vivienne Archdall
    • Jo Connellan
    • Andrew Nette
    • Helen Riseborough
    • Wayne Street

Guests enjoyed a light supper catered by local business The Wooden Spoon.

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.
