Through 'The Property Artists Charitable Trust', we are proud to support the local charities of 'Freds Place' for the homeless, and the Queensland Branch of the RSPCA.
As a local business that profits from the community we serve, we feel compelled through our sense of social responsibility standards to give back to that very community. To that end we have established our own charitable trust which is funded from every Real Estate sales commission we earn.
'Freds Place' is a new service located in Tweed Heads, which offers home and support services for single people and families who are experiencing homelessness or at risk of homelessness.
Fred's Place is a fully renovated home with three bathrooms, a large laundry, internet and telephone, television, staffed kitchen, inside and outside areas to socialise, storage and mailing facilities and provision of a dedicated and equipped room for Centrelink, Medicare, Counselling, Legal Assistance and Housing NSW, which are all available on a weekly or fortnightly basis. Case management with outreach availability is also offered along with emergency accommodation. All services are at no cost. It is a modern facility with a lovely homely feeling. Fred’s Place also manages Angela House which consist of two two-bedroom villas and a four bedroom home; these are used for medium term accommodation at a nominal rent.
Fred’s Place is located at 9 Boyd Street, Tweed Heads and volunteers are always welcome.
