Frasers Property Australia are proud to be involved with PIF House, Blacktown. A new place to call home for at-risk and homeless young people.
The Property Industry Foundation (PIF) has funded and project-managed the construction of both new and refurbished properties for various charities over the years.
PIF House Blacktown, owned and run by Marist 180, will be accommodation for at-risk and homeless young people in Blacktown. It is a project of the Property Industry Foundation (PIF) for Marist 180 with Frasers Property proudly providing design services, construction expertise and project management.
Rosemary Smithson, CEO of the Property Industry Foundation, said that every night across Australia there are over 44,000 young people who are homeless. "PIF House Blacktown is a great example of organisations coming together to make a tangible difference to the persistent problem of youth homelessness," she said.
Marist180 Residential Manager Natalie Chichmir said the home will provide up to a year's accommodation and counselling for young people aged 17 - 19. "The idea is once they leave here they're not relying on another organisation, they're independent," she said.
The project commenced with a sod-turning ceremony on 2 December 2016.
