2018-19 Launch: You're Invited!
You’re invited to the launch of our 2018-19 theme, Youth Homelessness.
Date: Thursday 30 August, 2018 Time: 6:00 pm Generously hosted by Shadforth Financial Group, Level 7, 161 Collins Street, Melbourne.
Our guest speaker is Donna Bennett, CEO of Hope Street Youth and Family Services. Hope Street is based in the northern and western suburbs of Melbourne, and has over 35 years’ experience in providing specialised services to young people in crisis, including young people with children. Hope Street works to empower young people to overcome disadvantage and to achieve their hopes and future goals.
One in six of the young people who responded to Mission Australia’s 2017 Youth Survey had experienced homelessness at some time. Homelessness greatly increases a young person’s vulnerability to violence and can be a barrier to their access to education and work prospects. Join us to hear from Donna about some of the issues and potential solutions.
Light refreshments will be provided. For catering purposes please RSVP at https://www.trybooking.com/XLPW
