This is a 14 day do-it-yourself walking challenge brought to you by the Property Industry Foundation
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 builds homes for homeless youth, giving them a second chance at life.
This is your chance to make a difference. Get out with your family, pets or challenge your workmates to map out a home for homeless youth by walking for good. Share your progress on your map with us via social media with the hashtag #walkforgood.
Every home that the Property Industry Foundation builds provides homeless youth with a place to live and the chance at a fresh start.

Your Support Helps Us...
Rebuild lives, one bedroom at a time
Our major initiative – The Haven Project – 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.
