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.

After months of campaigning from the sector, led by the Council to Homeless Persons, the Federal Government has announced an extension of the Equal Remuneration Order (ERO) Supplementation funding for the Australian homelessness sector.  This means that the sector can continue to support people without a home without a loss of resources and capacity, while homelessness services respond to the increased demand of people at risk of or experiencing homelessness.

Hope to Home in Whittlesea

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.
