Happy Employee Appreciation Day
Happy Employee Appreciation Day

It is with great pleasure that our CEO, Donna Bennett, acknowledges our team members’ valued expertise and contributions of their work with Hope Street on this national Employee Appreciation Day. It is an opportunity to pause and celebrate everyone who made Hope Street Youth and Family Services the organisation it is today:

I am always extremely proud and inspired by the achievements of our teams, particularly in the context of such significant social, economic and structural barriers impacting young people and their children. Each year they all respond to the individual needs of young people impacted by homelessness, worsening housing crisis, poverty, family violence to name a few, with a high level of drive and professionalism. I understand and appreciate the tremendous efforts they make as they strive to provide the best possible services, empowering young people to thrive. This is evident in our program data including client outcomes. Our client safe and stable housing outcomes exceed the Victorian and National average. It is also evident in the client stories we publish in our annual reports, on the website, Parity, etc. All this is achieved while our teams strive for the safety of young people and each other as they consistently rise to the twists and turns of life within a pandemic – now in its third year. Congratulations!

Thomastown Secondary College is hosting a pop-up COVID-19 vaccination clinic where the local community can get vaccinated.

The clinic is providing first and second dose vaccinations.

At Hope Street we encourage and support our staff and clients to get the COVID-19 vaccination. Not only will it keep us safe, but it will allow us to engage in the important things we have previously taken for granted, such as catching up with friends and family, going on holiday and connecting with our community.

The Victorian Council of Social Services (VCOSS) has created a Back To The Good Things vaccine ad campaign available in English, Arabic, Dari, Dinka, Greek, Hindi, Italian, Karen, Simplified Chinese and Vietnamese.

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.
