Hope to Home in Melton

The Hope to Home in Melton pilot program was completed in 2018/2019 and is now in a funding transition phase while Hope Street explores sustainable government funding opportunities. The evaluation research conducted by Victoria University and launched in August 2018 noted that the Hope to Home model was highly successful in achieving its aims, is unique and scalable to other local government areas across Victoria in diverting young people (at risk of) experiencing homelessness from crisis and accommodation services within the homelessness service system.

The Hope to Home in Melton pilot program aims to reduce the number of young people at risk of homelessness by addressing the barriers contributing to homelessness in the City of Melton. This program engages the support of community stakeholders, including local businesses, to address those barriers with more open and inclusive access to existing community life resources such as housing, employment, education, and social and wellbeing programs.
