Hengyi Pacific amplifies its commitment to develop new and better places for young homeless people

The Property Industry Foundation welcomes Hengyi Pacific’s focus on delivering positive change and an enduring legacy by becoming a platinum partner.

One in four Australians experiencing homelessness are children and young people aged 12-24,[1] and each night, 1 in 3 young people are being turned away from supported accommodation services[2]. At the Property Industry Foundation, we lead and manage a meaningful, and tangible solution to reducing homelessness for young people by bringing the property and construction industry together to focus on building safe and secure home environments.

Hengyi Pacific has giving back to the local community in Victoria through the collective impact provided by the work of the Property Industry Foundation since 2015.

“Hengyi Pacific, like all our collaborators, don’t just give money, they share valuable time, expertise and connections,”

“We believe that as a creator of new communities, our industry can and should play a role in addressing the issue of youth homelessness, and as such, we welcome this commitment from Hengyi Pacific.”

Hengyi Pacific is driven to make a difference and its core business of developing and building homes for people in the owner occupier/investor space and has been very successful for a small and agile team.

General Manager, Simon Manley says of the company’s increased commitment to the Foundation,

“It is an exciting way of getting involved and contributing with time and expertise.”

Simon and his team feel that contributing to those that do not have a home or need help is part of their core values and by taking an active step to not just financially contribute but also contribute with their time and knowledge within the industry is a better way to support the work our industry does to rebuild the lives of homeless youth.
