StreetSLEEP - Brisbane

Overview

Registration for this event is now open - click here to view the StreetSLEEP website.

We invite you to join us as we tackle the serious and persistent problem of youth homelessness. 

Get sponsored by your work colleagues, family and friends. 

 

Proceeds from this event, will contribute to our PIF House program. The Foundation has been gifted a parcel of land from the Queensland Government, and earlier this month lodged a Development Application to the Brisbane City Council to remove the existing house on the property, and construct 3 x 2 bedroom and 6 x 1 bedroom purpose built units, across two stages of work.

If approved, the site will be operated by Brisbane Youth Service (BYS) and will provide housing for three families and six individuals. BYS will support the young people during their tenancy and assist them to transition to independent living.
 
It is anticipated tenancies will range from 6 months to 2 years, with minimal tenancy changes in any given year.
 
This site is being developed as part of the Government Land for Accommodation and Support Services (GLASS) program by the Queensland Government. Under this program, State government assets identified as surplus to the requirement are offered to not for profit and charitable organisations to supply accommodation and services.
