Our Christmas community partner: Forage Built

A Community Christmas by Forage Built

Every South Australian deserves to feel part of a community this Christmas.

Forage Built seeks to foster a future where appropriate housing, community support programs and life-changing opportunities for employment can break the devastating cycle of homelessness.

By creating innovative and sustainable housing solutions that embrace dignity and community - such as the Calyx 16 prototype you can visit on Rundle Mall - we can take impactful steps towards a better future for the South Australians who need it most.

With homelessness on the rise, Forage Built's mission takes an integrated approach, as shelter alone is not enough to solve the issue in its entirety. Rather than relying on temporary solutions such as motels and share houses, the Calyx housing offers a personal haven to store belongings, sleep safely, and regain a sense of dignity and self worth.

The long-term goal sees communities of Calyx pods providing a fresh start as people experiencing homelessness connect and find their way back into permanent housing, breaking what is sometimes a generational cycle of disadvantage.

Forage Built events

With a strong commitment to tangible action, Forage Built provide more than just shelter as part of their mission, recognising the important and empowering role employment and inclusion can play in ending the cycle of homelessness. This December, Rundle Mall and Forage Built will host pop-ups that directly support this mission, with all proceeds going back to support Forage Built's work to build sustainable housing communities.
