Lack of affordable housing in Australia is a major problem and it’s a big contributing factor to homelessness. Earlier this year the Mercy Foundation made a decision to support and work with a new initiative by The Big Issue. It is called ‘Homes for Homes’ and it is an innovative way of creating a new fund to create affordable housing across Australia.
Homes for Homes is a long term project and we are looking forward to seeing this innovation help create much needed housing in the future. A website about this new project has just been launched. To find out more about Homes for Homes, how it works and the plans for the future vist the website by clicking here.
We congratulate the Big Issue and its CEO, Steven Persson, on working to create a new source of funding for affordable housing.
