Two decades of building bedrooms
June 2017 All
We funded the first home in 1997 in the Southern Highlands of NSW – and kept building. Since inception, we have funded the construction of 148 bedrooms, including our PIF Houses, for 11 different Charity Partners in NSW, Victoria and Queensland. These important projects have provided a safe place to live and the right support for approximately 300 young people each year.
Building is of course what our industry does best and so it makes sense for the Foundation to use this way to make a tangible difference to the serious and persistent problem of youth homelessness.
In the next five years, we will also build an additional 125 bedrooms, increasing the number of at-risk and homeless young people we can help transition to independence.
