The Property Industry Foundation

Every night there are 44,000  young Australians without a safe and secure place to sleep. Not every young person is able to live with their family and for many, foster families are not available. They need a safe and secure place to rebuild their lives. The Property Industry Foundation exists to solve this problem of youth homelessness.

The Property Industry Foundation believes that every young Australian deserves a safe, secure home environment – which provides a foundation of opportunity from which they can determine their future. We lead & coordinate the efforts of our industry, along with our charity partners, to create these safe & secure environments. 

The Haven Project

The Foundation has been building and refurbishing homes for homeless youth since 1996. We bring together the property and construction industry to build homes for homeless youth through a cost-efficient model, The Haven Project.  This unique 50/50 building model effectively takes every $1 raised and doubles its value. 

Once built, we hand these new homes over to our frontline charity partners which then run the homes. These partners include Wesley Mission, Stepping Stone House, the Salvation Army, Lighthouse Foundation and Brisbane Youth Services. See our latest Haven Houses here
