Out on the Street Van on 11 July, we had a little NAIDOC celebration with kangaroo stew, NAIDOC decorated cakes and a sausage sizzle. Approximately 32 people attended the Street Van that evening.
HOPE would like to thank Deb Woods and Linda Skerry who came to the Street Van service on the day with some bags for the homeless people in Armadale. They made the bags themselves, and the bags contained items such as pillows, toiletries, socks, beanies and scarves. They brought 50 men’s bags and 17 ladies’ bags.
There was an article in The Examiner paper on 11 July with them in there. They are known as ‘Sisterly Love for the Homeless’

Join me in showing your support for the Goldfield’s Dry July team as they pass the half way stage of Dry July!
To date they have raised $222.50 and it’s not too late to show your support for the team.
The team is showing their support to individuals, families and the wider community of the Goldfields with A&OD issues as well by leading by example.
But Dry July is much more than giving up alcohol for a month. They are also raising funds to help people affected by cancer, and we'd love you to support us by donating to our Dry July team 'WA Goldfield's Pipeline of Hope'.
The funds we raise will help provide invaluable services to cancer patients, their families and carers – whether it’s a lift to a life-saving appointment, guidance from a specialist nurse, connection to an informative voice, access to therapy programs or a bed close to treatment.
Every donation counts, and there's no donation too small (or big!)
Virtual Legal Aid offices launched this week operating out of HOPE’s offices in Esperance, Leonora and Karratha.
Western Australia’s most vulnerable community members will now have better access to legal advice thanks to the initiative, with the state’s Attorney-General noting that the virtual offices will enable the agency to deliver services in locations where Legal Aid does not have a physical office.
In partnership with local community organisations at each location, 10 virtual offices have been set up across the state’s metropolitan and regional areas, a statement explained, with Legal Aid already assessing other locations around WA for a second tranche of virtual offices.
“Taking the law where it is needed most”, the initiative has been kicked off with metropolitan office locations at Armadale, Joondalup, Mandurah and Midland, while regional virtual offerings can now be found at Esperance, Fitzroy Crossing, Halls Creek, Karratha, Leonora and Meekatharra.
Screens with cameras have been installed at community legal centres that have partnered with Legal Aid to host the service, it was noted.
