Dubbo

Our HopeStreet - Dubbo centre is a place of refuge and restoration where faith is put into action.

The people who walk through our doors experience brokenness and more than often are suffering homelessness, have or are experiencing domestic violence, marriage breakdown and financial stress.

Each story and circumstance is different, however the one thing that unites each of these situations and people is the lack of hope they are experiencing.

It is here where our team helps to build up every person from where they are, offering hope, care and practical support that takes into account all of the needs that are relevant to a person’s circumstances.

We’re about going beyond the basic needs and look at a person’s whole situation, addressing their physical, spiritual and emotional needs.

What we do

No Interest Loans

Giving individuals and families access to safe and affordable loans

Our No Interest Loans are absolutely free of interest, fees, charges or penalties. They’re about giving individuals and families access to safe and affordable loans for everyday items such as white goods, car repairs, school uniforms, computers and medical bills.

People with poor credit history, or a string of bad debt and no spare cash, really struggle to find the funds for these every day or emergency costs, which can lead to substantial hardship. This basic financial support means that individuals and families are able to look towards their future, with a loan that empowers them, rather than adding to the cycle of debt.

Low Interest Loans

Giving people a fair go with a loan they can afford to pay

StepUP low interest loans are a fair and affordable option for families and individuals on low incomes, who require funds for personal and household expenses up to the value of $3000. Alternative options such as payday lenders or loan sharks provide little to no help in breaking the cycle of debt, and by the time interest is paid, the value of the loan can increase by up to 400%. Families and individuals receiving government benefits or who have a marked credit history also come up against barriers when they seek loans through traditional channels, such as banks, so StepUP gives them a fair go and provides them with a loan they can afford to repay.

Food Support

HopeStreet welcomes many people living with disadvantage through its doors every day, to enjoy nutritious, wholesome sit-down meals. Most often, they are homeless and the meal we provide might be the only meal they eat that day. It’s not just about the meal though; HopeStreet is a safe and welcoming place where positive friendships are built and the sense of community is strong.

Food support extends beyond sit down meals at HopeStreet and crisis food packs are also provided often to individuals and families who lack the basic items to make a meal.
