Hume in partnership with CORE Community Services and YFoundations won the 2017 Premiers Award for our Youth Housing Options Program (YHOP) under the Reducing Youth Homelessness category. This award category recognises those who have worked on programs, initiatives, innovations or improvements that support more young people to successfully move from Specialist Homelessness Services to long-term accommodation (supporting the Premier's priority to increase the proportion of youth people who successfully move from Specialist Homelessness Services to long-term accommodation to more than 34% by 2019).
YHOP shares the Future Directions goal to reduce young people's dependence on social housing. Via a combination of direct support and workshops, YHOP provides young people with links to housing knowledge, education and employment support and community engagement activities.
