Mayoral Ball 2015

In support of the Melton City Council, Hope Street was delighted to attend the annual Mayoral Ball 2015 hosted by the Mayor Sophie Ramsey. 

Our organisation has been a part of the City of Melton community since 2009, with the establishment of our Hope Street in Melton program providing supported medium term accommodation to vulnerable local young people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.   The Councillors and Officers of Melton City Council have been integral to the establishment of Hope Street In Melton, ensuring valuable community services are brought into the area and remain as a part of the Melton community.

The Mayoral Ball was held on 17 September 2015 at the Tabcorp Park in Melton and Hope Street hosted a table with special guests:

  • Don Nardella (MP)
  • Paul Baulch (Hope Street Corporate Committee)
  • Jack Moshakis (Hope Street Corporate Committee)

Jo Connellan, Director of Hope Street representing the Board, shared in the City of Melton celebration, as did our CEO, Donna Bennett; Executive Administration Officer, Fiona Rigney; Operations Manager, Dale Hardy and Service Development Manager, Mandy Baxter.

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.
