PIF House Toongabbie, New South Wales

Number of bedrooms 6
Building Partner Mirvac
Charity Partner Marist180

Mirvac and PIF have partnered to build a six-bedroom house in Toongabbie where five homeless youths will live and receive care, mentoring and support from Marist180, supported by a live-in carer. They’ll be encouraged to work or study and will do so with a roof over their heads and a safe, warm place to call home.

Kate Mills, Chief Executive Officer, Property Industry Foundation, said that thanks to the kindness of many in the property and construction industry, the Foundation was on track to achieve its goal of 125 bedrooms.
“We are extremely grateful to Mirvac for undertaking this project,” said Ms Mills. “Our industry is at its best when we use our skills and resources in property and construction to work together to achieve something that is such a fundamental right – a home.

“We can’t solve the multitude of problems that lead to youth homelessness. We have done what we can and what we are all extremely good at – building homes, working together towards a common goal.

This really is a fantastic demonstration of our industry at its best and I hope represents the turning point for the young people who will live here.

Giving back, volunteering, is an integral part of the glue that binds a society together and why at Mirvac we are directing $100 million towards purpose driven organisations such as the Property Industry Foundation and Marist180.”
