The mission of the Property Industry Foundation is to make a tangible difference to the serious and persistent problem of youth homelessness. This is achieved by partnering with respected charities to build safe environments and support charity-managed initiatives focused on education, employment and well-being.
Our impact statement
The Foundation’s commitment results in positive, life-changing impact on at-risk and homeless young people while achieving maximum social return on the industry’s investment.
Over the last 20 years, our corporate donors and thousands people from across the industry have donated their time, skills and money to rebuild the lives of young people who do not have a safe and secure place to live. Over the last 5 years we have invested $6.5m into vital programs, helping our Charity Partners to rebuild young lives.
Kylie and Sarah*
Kylie and Sarah were 11 and 15 years old and had never lived in a real home. They had suffered every type of abuse and had no safe place to stay. That’s why they were homeless. On some nights they lived at Central Station.
The Property Industry Foundation, together with Marist Youth Care, created a safe home for the girls to live and for the first time ever they had their own bedroom.
The Foundation works to offer at-risk and homeless young people, just like Kylie and Sarah, a choice and hope for the future.
