HopeStreet unveiled in Windale

In September BaptistCare HopeStreet officially unveiled the first of its rebranded Community Centres, commencing in Windale with a special event featuring local graffiti artists Shane Kennedy and Faith Curtis from Up & Up.

The mural features the quote ‘Once you choose hope, anything is possible’ and celebrates the expansion of the HopeStreet story from its birthplace in Woolloomooloo to across NSW and ACT, where our community centres are safe and welcoming spaces for people to reach out for help.

Our revamped Windale centre offers support for people facing increasing disadvantage and marginalisation. Staff and volunteers provide practical assistance such as low cost groceries, nutritious meals, no and low interest loans, social opportunities, as well as tailored services including case work, skills-based workshops and educational programs.

Increasingly in demand, Windale’s low cost groceries are sourced from local food partners and include everything from fresh bread, cereal, fruits, vegetables and cleaning products.

Our centre offers regular meals including breakfast and lunches, and also provides food vouchers for use in its low cost grocery store, to ensure people have basic items to make a meal.
