The Property Industry Foundation
The Property Industry Foundation brings together the property and construction industry in a unique collaboration to have a tangible impact on youth homelessness. Powered by the industry, The Foundation builds homes for homeless youth and provides ongoing support for homes where young people can rebuild their lives.
A tangible solution
The Property Industry Foundation leads an industry-wide collaboration that has a tangible impact on youth homelessness by raising funds, building accommodation, and providing ongoing support for homes where young people can live safely. It brings together the property and construction industry to build homes for homeless youth through
The Foundation’s flagship home building program – the Haven Project (formerly PIF House Program). The Foundation fundraises to build each Haven House. Each $1 raised is then matched with in-kind donations of skills, labour and goods from the property and construction industry. This unique partnership doubles the value of every $1 donated.
The Foundation has been building and refurbishing homes for homeless youth since 1996 and aims to build 300 bedrooms for homeless youth by 2025.
Your Support Helps Us...
Rebuild lives, one bedroom at a time
Our major initiative – The Haven Project (formerly the PIF House Program) – is the building and refurbishing of homes for homeless youth since 1996.
Each $1 raised is then matched with in-kind donations of skills, labour and goods from the property and construction industry.
This unique partnership doubles the value of every $1 donated.
Turn houses into homes
Providing vulnerable young people with a place to live that's not just safe, but also homely, can contribute to an invaluable improvement in their sense of self. As the creator of homes and communities, our industry can and should play a role in addressing youth homelessness. We work collaboratively with other charities to break the cycle of youth homelessness and changing lives for the better.
Invest in initiatives to reach at-risk youths
It is important to think about the underlying causes of youth homelessness, so supporting early intervention and initiatives that reach thousands of at-risk youth can help stop young people from becoming homeless in the first place.
