New youth housing option

Children with a disability needing emergency crisis accommodation will now be able to access almost immediate support in Thornhill Park thanks to an innovative approach available to public investors

Ethical Property Investments aims to connect investors with organisations such as Kind and Care Supports to provide desperately needed crisis accommodation for children who would otherwise be homeless or locked up.

The new Thornhill Park location has been purpose built to suit children struggling with disability.

It will house four to six children as well as their carers.

Ethical Property Investments owner Goro Gupta said preventing children from being homeless is vital.

“This will be a pilot property over the next six months and if it works, I will roll it out to more private investors, including mum and dad investors,” he said.

Kind and Care Supports regional director Joel Scott said the properties will add to the two currently owned by the organisation easing the burden for desperate families who have been forced to have to rely on emergency services for help in the past.

“The crisis accommodation being provided with the help of Goro is extremely critical. It means kids can stay out of the child protection system and out of the justice system,” he said.
