A Solid Foundation in Granville for Youth in Need!
An exciting new project is underway at Haven House Granville in Western Sydney, with the initial structural build now complete. The four-bedroom home will be managed by our Charity Partner, Platform Youth Services, providing a welcoming living environment and case management support to homeless youth who are engaged in education.
Our Building Partners JTM Carpentry reports that Haven House Granville now has a solid and robust foundation.
“The initial structural phase of the build is now complete, along with external drainage works,”
“A key element of the initial phase involved underpinning the existing walls of the house in order to create a more stable and durable foundation, which will provide Haven House Granville with a great base and a robust footing long into the future.”JTM’s Neill Johnston
Recent flooding and heavy rain in Sydney didn’t stop the team from achieving their goal.
“Our initial groundworks, both inside and outside the house had been regularly hampered by the extensive wet weather in Sydney of late, so we are happy that we've now been able to conclude that section of the renovation.”
JTM Carpentry regularly nurtures new apprentices, giving them a great sense of fulfilment and pride, and supporting the Property Industry Foundation to extend that support to homeless youth was a natural next step.
“Getting on the tools to support youth out of homelessness was a logical development,”
“We believe that all young people deserve the same opportunity in life, regardless of their situation, and we are proud to provide Sydney’s homeless youth with a solid foundation to help develop themselves.”The JTM Team
The Goodman Foundation donated $40,000 towards the renovation of Haven House Granville, and they are thrilled to see the house taking shape.
“We’re proud to support a new beginning for Haven House Granville, so it can provide the stable home these young people deserve,”
“By creating a warm and stable living environment, the residents of Haven House Granville will have the opportunity to focus on their education and gain the skills they need to set them up for work and life as independent adults. Together, the property and construction industry can make such a difference if we all come together to support homeless young people in their time of need.”Jo Cameron, CEO The Goodman Foundation
Platform Youth Services are currently assessing young people in preparation for the program launch.
“We are very much looking forward to the door opening on Granville House,"
"For the young people who are unable to rely on family support in this critical developmental stage of their lives, the program will provide that time, personalised attention, mentoring, coaching and access to opportunities to fulfill independence and productive lives.”Emma Jordan, Manager at Platform Youth Services
