New partnership joins forces to tackle homelessness in Australia
The partnership will see PEXA grant at least $250,000 in funding to Homes for Homes across two years via a national grant disbursement program designed to help increase the supply of social and affordable housing for those who need it most.
This social innovation in Queensland has been designed to offer emergency beds to homeless people on the Sunshine Coast, as support agencies struggle to help an avalanche of people caught in the housing crisis.
It will house eight people each night in pods with toilets, air conditioning, wifi and charging stations
The $100,000 bus has been financed from community donations through a campaign that began when a homeless man was killed in his sleeping bag at Maroochydore in 2019.
