Urbane Homes, a leading provider of quality integrated house and land solutions for first home owners and investors, has just announced it will commit $25,000 in donations to the Property Industry Foundation over the next twelve months to help create housing for homeless youth.
“The Urbane Homes business is built around a desire to make the process of building a brand-new home as simple and enjoyable as possible, without uncertainty, stress or cost blow-outs. The philosophy is simple; everything is included, and all the prices are fixed from the very beginning ensuring no nasty surprises,” Bill Linn, Urbane Homes Founder & Chairman said.
“Owning a high quality, value for money new home should be within every Queenslander’s reach. Our vision is to provide an easy way for people to achieve it, through superior design, service, impeccable workmanship and certainty on price, build time and inclusions. That’s the Urbane Homes difference.”
While Urbane Homes has a strong focus on helping first home buyers in south east Queensland exit the rental cycle and into a quality new home, they are also committed to assisting those less fortunate living in the community into housing as well.
“When we established Urbane Homes, we wanted to align with an organisation working to make a difference to those who really need it,” said Mr Linn.
“The Property Industry Foundation raises money and builds homes to make a tangible difference to the serious and persistent problem of youth homelessness. It was an easy decision therefore, for Urbane Homes to commit to donating to the Foundation.”
Brian McGuckin, Chairman of the Foundation in Queensland said, “I commend and thank Urbane Homes for their fundraising commitment.”
Mr McGuckin said the donation was timely as construction was due to begin later this year on another PIF House, a home to be operated by Brisbane Youth Services.
“Young people under the age of 25 make up 40 per cent of the 19,831 homeless Queenslanders, and research shows the number of children aged under 12 are the highest age group who are homeless,” he said.
“We work with leading charitable organisations and bring our expertise to the table by constructing safe accommodation at PIF Houses.”
The Property Industry Foundation raises funds in corporate donations, providing in-kind building services to over 20 different programs and charities that help young people at risk.
