On World Homeless Day and World Mental Health Day on 10 October, Hope Street acknowledges the strengths and resilience of the thousands of young people and young families experiencing homelessness each year. We are inspired by their abilities in living each day whilst coping with the impact of not having a safe home, including instability, poverty and poor mental health. Hope Street is here to support you.
Housing and homelessness services are deemed essential services and are therefore continuing to operate during the current restrictions in force across metropolitan Melbourne and regional Victoria. As a specialist youth homelessness service, Hope Street is committed to providing workforce and client safety in these unprecedented times.
Our front-line teams in the Cities of Melton, Moreland and Whittlesea continue to provide 24/7 services, support and accommodation to young people who don’t have a safe place to call home.
