Get Involved

Homes for People has a number of ways that you can contribute towards providing affordable housing in our community.


As a social enterprise, Homes for People has a diverse group of investors who are making a difference through Homes for People's Social Impact Investment model. These equity partners have collectively invested well over a million dollars.

Investing $100,000 enables us to develop additional homes for our community.

Housing is capital intensive and social impact investment is increasingly being used by philanthropists. Financial partners receive a blended value return on investment in the form of a meaningful social return accompanied by an agreed financial return.

Homes for People is able to deliver housing to lower income households, while recycling investor capital and building equity. After the completion of our first eleven homes, 100% of our investor funds had been regenerated and was put to use in subsequent developments.

Similar to the 'Bank of Mum and Dad’ providing children a hand-up into their first home, Homes for People is also able to provide assisted homeownership programmes, enabling more people in the community to overcome their present barriers to home ownership.


Land Partners

Land is one of the key resources we need to support lower income households into housing. If you have land and would like to see it used for affordable housing, please be in touch.

Mark owns a home but he no longer wants to manage his full sized section. Homes for People will provide the expertise to get the section sub-divided, then purchase the land for the purpose of building an affordable family home.


While social impact investment is our focus, we accept donations. Contact us for bank account details and to receive a tax deduction receipt. You can also use the givealittle page to donate.
