PAYCE Security Group walks for youth homelessness
May 11, 2021 | News
It is a sobering statistic – 44,000 young Australians are homeless every night.
Dig a little deeper, and that figure looks even worse, 16,000 of those are 12 years or under.
For the past 24 years, the Property Industry Foundation (PIF) has been tackling youth homelessness.
PIF has a mission, in partnership with its property industry members, to increase the number of transitional housing beds through its House Program.
PIF has a target of building 125 bedrooms in the five-year period between 2017 and 2021.
Transitional Housing is a stepping-stone for young people – giving them much-needed stability as they build a better future for themselves.
The stability allows the young people to return to school, TAFE or undertake job training.
PAYCE Security Group will participate in the Property Industry Foundation’s 30-Day Fitness Challenge to raise awareness and much needed funds for homeless youth.
Every day for 30 days during May, PAYCE Security Group employees will be walking to accumulate kilometres and raise funds along the way.
PAYCE Security Group’s philanthropic partner, the PAYCE Foundation has supported PIF in the past and has signed on as a $10,000 platinum sponsor.
Last year, PAYCE Foundation helped raise an additional $8500.00 for PIF’s homeless youth fundraiser, National Hard Hat Day.
