Fairhaven Homes was delighted to support the fantastic and tireless work of the Victorian Homeless Fund, which exists to relieve and prevent homelessness in Victoria.
We jumped at the chance to participate in the Keith Robinson House project. The Fairhaven Homes team built an inspiring home to emulate the inspiration of Keith Robinson, who has spent a lifetime relieving homelessness by helping people into homes and is considered a founding father of the Housing Industry Association (HIA).
Featuring the Avoca design, this spacious three-bedroom home will be a safe space for children and parents to rebuild their lives. It includes two bathrooms, a garage, and a covered outdoor deck on a fully landscaped block.
Haven; Home, Safe were instrumental in the project, supplying the land and providing ongoing support to the families who will call this house their home.
A huge thanks to the incredible staff, tradespeople and suppliers of Fairhaven Homes who generously donated their time, expertise and care to lovingly craft a home that will shelter families emotionally as well as physically.
Homelessness is not a choice. In Victoria, on any given night there are approximately 1,100 people sleeping rough, making up 5% of the state’s homelessness. In Victoria alone the number of clients assisted by homelessness services has grown to more than 100,000 each year. Children are one of the largest groups of Australians experiencing homelessness.
