All smiles for the future

Nick, a former Hope Street young person, can smile again, thanks to a wonderful nurse and free dental care program for homeless people.

Health issues have a pervasive detrimental influence on many aspects of a young person’s existence, and when that young person is also homeless or at risk of being homeless they face the additional barrier of limited or no access to adequate health care.

The Moreland Leader newspaper has a feature article on how Hope Street's RDNS nurse, Cath Flanagan, helped Nick access dental and other medical care which is now enabling him to get his studies, work and family life back on track, without the debilitating pain. Check out the article and video below which features Nick, Cath and Melinda (Senior Dentist at Merri Community Health Services [now known as Merri Health]):

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.
