Hope Lives Here

At BaptistCare HopeStreet, we seek to transform the lives of people in our communities who are living with disadvantage or experiencing great personal trials.

Delivering support services that are person-centred and tailored to meet local needs, our approach at HopeStreet is deeply rooted in our People First philosophy. We respect and care for each person as a valued individual, placing their health and wellbeing above all else.

Our wide range of services supports individuals and families to navigate challenging times, such as homelessness, accessing affordable food, domestic violence, long-term unemployment, relationship breakdown, mental health issues, or addiction. We also walk alongside people who are caught in a cycle of poverty and debt, often with diminished opportunities to break free and live well.

How We Help

“It broke me. But I had to be strong for my kids.” Hardship can strike anyone at any time...

It’s not easy work being a mum. Let alone a hardworking, single mum, like Sally*, raising two kids. All by herself.

Sally is a strong woman but even the strongest people need help sometimes. Especially when she’s going through the biggest health crisis of her life. So many like her, are already struggling with the cost of living crisis in Australia.

Your kindness helps support a mum like Sally through crisis… so her kids don’t miss out on food.

Because when you’re facing cancer, you need to focus on fighting for your life... not where your children’s next meal is coming from.

Three years ago, Sally was diagnosed with early-stage breast cancer.

“That was the scariest thing I’ve ever had to deal with. I had two surgeries and five weeks of radiation. Being a single mum, it was hard on my children.”

Sally’s treatment was so brutal it took every last ounce of energy she had. Yet she fought on. She struggled just to get her kids, James and Grace, up and dressed each morning and fed every night.

Getting through a full day at work exhausted her. Then Sally lost her job. Sadly, being sick cost Sally her livelihood.

At the scariest time in her life, she was left without a way to provide for her children. What a heartbreaking and frightening situation to find yourself in!

That’s when Sally turned to HopeStreet.
