The “My Home” initiative is an immediate response to provide housing for people who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. Research from far and wide tells us that we need housing first and foremost if we have any chance of significantly reducing the number of people who are homeless. “My Home” uses a Public Private Partnership (PPP) model which brings together Government, Church, Private Sector, Community Housing Providers (CHP) and Support Services Providers to share the responsibility of creating housing for people who are homeless and helping them re-establish themselves in our community.
The Starting Point
A major cost of providing housing is land. “My Home” begins with the premise that removing the cost of land significantly reduces the overall cost of housing. Housing Cost

How PPP Works
Public Private Partnership (PPP) is a commonly used business development model by which the Public Sector and Private Sector work together to make a project happen.
“My Home” brings together Public Sector (State and Local Government, Church) and Private Sector (corporations, charitable foundations and individuals) supported by Community Housing Providers to enable housing for homeless people or those at risk of homelessness.
