Property Powerhouse Backing Homeless Youths

November 14, 2022 | IN Media Release and News | BY AVID | 2 min read

Property powerhouse, Bruce Harper, joins the Property Industry Foundation’s Board of Advisors aiming to improve the lives of Australia’s homeless youth.

Widely recognised for his 35 years of industry experience and as General Manager Queensland of AVID Property Group (AVID), Mr Harper said he joins the Board eager to directly support and collectively create genuine change to a pressing industry and societal issue.

“Sadly, the number of young people experiencing homelessness is increasing nationally at an alarming rate with no single cause and no single solution,” Mr Harper said.

“Joining the advisory board provides me with a unique opportunity to leverage industry connections and make small change which leads to bigger change towards ending youth homelessness.

“My appointment is a continuation of a longstanding relationship between the Foundation and AVID and a natural step in strengthening both AVID’s and my support of young Australians in need.”

According to the Property Industry Foundation, more than 116,000 Australians experience homelessness on any given night, and 42 per cent of Australia’s homeless population are under 25 years old.

In extension to Mr Harper’s Queensland-based involvement and commitment, AVID recently implemented a national partnership with the Property Industry Foundation.

“Part of AVID’s vision is to deliver thriving, connected communities that bring people together – which also involves seeking ways to connect with different community groups,” Mr Harper said.

“As property developers, we believe it’s important to support causes that align with our company values, which is why our national partnership, and my Board contribution was a natural fit.”

Aiming to increase the availability of accommodation for youth homelessness, the Foundation have distributed nearly $30 million to youth homelessness causes over 25 years.
