Description

This is the anniversary of the handing down of the Bringing Them Home report into the Stolen Generations, and an opportunity for us all to reflect, commemorate, heal and acknowledge the Stolen Generations and their families. The Bringing Them Home report recommended that a National Sorry Day be held each year "to commemorate the history of forcible removals and its effects." Read more at Reconciliation Australia

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.
