‘BAPTISTCARE’ BECOMES ‘HOPE STREET’

Their name may have changed, but the mission of BaptistCare’s community centres across the Hunter, remains the same.

Rebranded as ‘Hope Street’ centres today – they continue to provide disadvantaged people with access to food, support services, and low-cost loans.

The charity hopes the change will encourage more people to seek support.

“Heaps of people come in, and no, no two days are ever the same but it’s just about, you know, getting alongside of them – supporting them.”

Beneficiaries say they have found the centre to be indispensable.

“I am very, very grateful for this service, and I want it to be out there, so that everyone can know, that it’s exactly what this community needs.”
