Major partners - Stepping Stone House

We thank our generous sponsors for the valuable contributions they make to Stepping Stone House.


The Chappell Foundation

Australia is one of the greatest countries on earth and yet our rate of youth homelessness is a national crisis. Each night more than 30,000 people under the age of 25 sleep without shelter.

The Chappell Foundation raises funds to donate to those working on the frontline to end this national crisis.


Kennards Hire & The Kennards Hire Foundation

Kennards Hire House was opened in 2018, by the (previous) NSW Minister for Family and Community Services, Pru Goward. The renovated house was made possible from funding provided by Kennards Hire and the Kennard family, and labour donated by building company Total Construction. Kennards Hire and the Kennards Hire Foundation continue to provide ongoing support to Stepping Stone House and its programs.


The Property Industry Foundation

The Property Industry Foundation believes that every young Australian deserves a safe, secure home environment. They bring together the property and construction industry to build homes for homeless youth through a cost-efficient model, The PIF House Program. Each $1 raised through the program is matched through in-kind donations of skills, labour and goods. The Foundation has been building and refurbishing homes for homeless youth since 1996 and aims to build 300 bedrooms for homeless youth by 2025.
