Australia has 116,000 homeless every night and a chronic shortage of 200,000 social and affordable houses. Due to a severe lack of funding, the shortage is projected to grow to over 600,000 houses by 2030.
The flow-on effects make this one of Australia’s biggest social issues. Governments cannot solve this alone. The only way to address this crisis is for all Australians to work together.
This issue affects us all
A safe and secure home is fundamentally linked to our well-being. A home provides the opportunity to participate in the social and economic life of our community.
Beyond the human impact, our chronic shortage of housing also results in a significant increases in social welfare costs.
A simple voluntary solution
- Homes for Homes raises new funding.
Vendors of registered properties make a tax deductible donation of 0.1% of a property sale price at time of sale ($500 donation on a $500,000 property sale).
- Homes for Homes invests funds.
Funds are invested to increase supply of social and affordable dwellings. Funds raised in each state or territory are invested pro-rata in that state or territory.
- Homes for Homes creates generational change … strengthening communities.
