HoMie Pathway Alliance
- Are you a Melbourne-based support service? Check here to find out how to link a young person in with HoMie.
- Are you a young person affected by homelessness or hardship? In order to apply for the internship, you will need to be connected to a local youth service. If you are not connected to a service, get in touch with one of the services listed here. If you are already connected to a service, let your youth worker or key support worker know that you are interested and ask them to get in touch with us.
HOMIE VIP SHOPPING DAYS:
Picture this: a store has closed just for you. Not only that, but your very own personal shopper helps you select brand-new clothes to reflect your personal style, a hairdresser is there to give you that fresh cut, you take home a toiletry pack of self-care goodies; and to top it off you can opt to get your nails done. Big yes.
The best bit? It’s all for free, because it’s a HoMie-ran initiative funded by kind people in your own community who shop at the store and align with HoMie’s values.
We developed our VIP Shopping Days to provide young people affected by homelessness or hardship, along with their key support worker, a day where they are treated like the VIP that they are!
HOW IT WORKS:
Twelve times a year since our first VIP Shopping Day in June 2015, HoMie has closed its doors to the public and invited young people connected through community support services to shop for free at the HoMie Street Store.
Each VIP shopper is welcomed into our store for a day of pampering and fun. Young people receive five free items of brand-new HoMie clothing, haircuts, beauty services, and lunch with our friendly team.Apart from clothing, HoMie provides a dignified shopping experience, increased social inclusion, and feelings of connectedness for young Melburnians affected by homelessness or hardship.
