Tiny Homes Foundation is a not for profit organisation dedicated to providing socially, environmentally and economically sustainable affordable housing solutions.
Our pilot tiny home project in Gosford, NSW is an Australian first based on a "Housing-first" principles that prioritises housing for people experiencing or at risk of homelessness and then wraps around additional supports and services as needed.
Completed in May 2018, our pilot project has proved a most worthy alternative to homelessness for disadvantaged youth. Tenants have maintained their tenancies, their mental health has improved and they have engaged in education and employment.
Coast Shelter, and Pacific Link Housing, have been impressed by the success of the project and advocate for more such projects. Our tiny homes have empowered their clients to gain independent living skills so they can confidently transition to conventional housing.
A door has opened to a national conversation prioritising meaningful collaborations between landowners, social housing providers and NFP developers to jointly grow affordable housing stock and diversity – we look forward to being instrumental in this conversation.
