Abstract

This report details evaluation research findings in relation to the Hope to Home in Melton and Hope to Home in Whittlesea programs. In each of these pilots, Hope Street Youth and Family Services Limited, with funding from Gandel Philanthropy and the Lord Mayors Charitable Foundation, partnered with real estate agents to secure tenancies for young people, who have been affected by homelessness. In addition, Hope Street Youth and Family Services partnered with Melton City Council Housing Services and housing services in the City of Whittlesea, who acted as a referral pathway for young people into the program, and also provided short-term case-management support. The Hope to Home pilot model is holistic in scope; that in, in addition to facilitating housing, it aimed to assist with seeking employment, education, social worker support, flexible brokerage, and workshops that teach living skills.
