Funds Raised

StreetSLEEP Melbourne

We all know it’s easier to solve problems when you work together as a team. This World Homeless Day get your colleagues together and sleep out as part of the Property Industry Foundation’s StreetSLEEP event on 10 October. You’ll help us raise funds so we can build homes for homeless youth. Our StreetSLEEP Ambassador is comedian, author and participant on Filthy Rich & Homeless, Benjamin Law. He’s gone out of his way to experience homelessness and that’s why he’s keen to do his bit.

Many forms of homelessness aren’t obvious or visible, like couch surfing, crisis accommodation, dossing and sleeping on overnight trains. Walk 500 metres in any direction and you'll encounter folks sleeping rough, asking for change or living out of tents in parks.It’s a problem everyone sees but most people are not sure what to do about it. This year you have the chance to make a difference, sleep out in 4 cities around Australia: Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Gold Coast.

So grab your colleagues, friends and your sleeping bags and on October 10 sleep out to raise money for homelessness.

Our PIF house program is the Property Industry Foundation’s flagship program,  where we partner with leading property and construction organisations to build and refurbish homes for at-risk homeless youth.

This a unique 50/50 model whereby funds raised from taking part in events such as StreetSLEEP enables us to raise half the investment to build a house, with the other half donated by the time, labour, good and services from within the property and construction industry.

Our goal is to build 125 bedrooms by 2021 and with your help we can achieve this!

So far we have built 56 bedrooms with another 46 bedroom in the pipeline in New South Wales, Victoria and Queensland. Current projects include PIF House Kingsford in Sydney, PIF House Clayton in Melbourne and PIF House Brisbane in Queensland.

All our PIF Houses are run charity partners including Lighthouse Foundation, Brisbane Youth Services, Wesley Mission, Marist 180 and Kari.
Over a the lifetime these bedrooms will provide a young person a place to call home so they won’t ever need to sleep rough again.
