Mount Druitt

HopeStreet - Mount Druitt works alongside families in developing strong, resilient communities.

When families are stronger, houses become homes and suburbs become communities. At HopeStreet Mount Druitt we walk alongside and support families where they live, working together to build a stronger community where individuals and families in Willmot and Lethbridge Park achieve their goals and thrive.

 

What we do

Community Development

In Willmot and Lethbridge Park residents lead the way. We work across the community in schools, community centres and in collaboration with other services to help build a stronger and more resilient community.

Family support and strengthening

Our caseworkers are based in Lethbridge Park and Willmot, and support families where they live.

We take the time to get to know families, and to develop trust, so families can choose the help they need. We do this through support work, and the coordinating and navigation of services through case management and advocacy. 

Our chaplain also works with youth and families at a local primary school, supporting them with programs that focus on self-esteem and parenting.

Employment Pathways

We partner with residents, collaborate with local services, businesses and government-funded entities to support families to develop economic resilience in Willmot and Lethbridge Park.

We do this through community engagement, elevating community voice to advocate for systemic change, and offer wrap-around (pre/post-employment) support to empower individuals in overcoming barriers to employment. 

COACH Community Mentoring Program

We also work collaboratively with Salvation Army, Greater West for Christ, and local churches to provide community members with the option to have 'a friend with purpose' to provide weekly support (for 12-18 months), to identify and achieve goals related to overcoming barriers to employment, through the COACH Community Mentoring program.
