Hope Street have designed an innovative support response to youth homelessness solution that will offer not only a safe home but access to apprenticeships and job training, as well as access to mental health, alcohol and other drugs and wraparound community services.
Next year as a priority, Hope Street will progress our work with the local community to establish a Hope Street First Response Youth Service in the City of Whittlesea.
This leading-designed facility, based on the First Response Youth Service in Melton model opened in August 2020, will provide crisis accommodation and support to 100 young people including young families per year, in a purpose-built 13-bedroom centre that includes two 2-bedroom family units. The model also incorporates a mobile outreach service to 120 young people including young families per year.
