Mirvac and PIF have partnered to build a six-bedroom house in Toongabbie where five homeless youths will live and receive care, mentoring and support from Marist180, supported by a live-in carer. They’ll be encouraged to work or study and will do so with a roof over their heads and a safe, warm place to call home.
Kate Mills, Chief Executive Officer, Property Industry Foundation, said that thanks to the kindness of many in the property and construction industry, the Foundation was on track to achieve its goal of 125 bedrooms.
“We are extremely grateful to Mirvac for undertaking this project,” said Ms Mills. “Our industry is at its best when we use our skills and resources in property and construction to work together to achieve something that is such a fundamental right – a home.
