It was an honour to celebrate with our friends at Balcon Group, who donated $100,000 to Homeforhomes to help support Australia’s homeless and housing crisis.

Balcon Group donates 0.1% of the sale price from every house sold in their 4500 lot master-planned community, Orana, to Homes for Homes.

The $100,000 donation was presented to Homes for Homes’ National Partnerships Manager Sarah Witty by the team from Balcon Group and our team at Orana’s site office in Clyde North.

Balcon and Core is proud of the partnership that has been established with Homes for Homes and delighted that the milestone of $100,000 in direct donations has been achieved.

“The partnership is a great example of how like-minded organisations from the private and not-for-profit sector can work together to achieve practical outcomes that help people unable to access safe and secure housing. Housing accessibility and affordability are critical issues in the City of Casey and Balcon is pleased to be able to make a positive contribution through its Orana community in Clyde North.” Jason Shaw, Balcon’s Development Manager said.

Homes for Homes CEO Steven Persson said, “Balcon are forward thinkers, and have demonstrated incredible leadership and commitment in supporting Homes for Homes.

“We are proud to partner with them and thank all the residents of Orana for coming together to solve homelessness; this donation of $100,000 will be used to create housing for those in need of a safe and secure place to live.”

Homes for Homes is an independent, not-for-profit organisation created by Australia’s largest and most successful social enterprise, The Big Issue, to generate funds to tackle Australia’s chronic shortage of more than 600,000 social and affordable homes by raising money through donations from property sales.

​Balcon and Core proudly support Homes for Homes and are committed to donating 0.1% of the sale price of each lot sold at Orana to Homes for Homes. The donations are pooled and granted to community housing providers to increase the supply of social and affordable housing across Australia.
