Celebrating Joy at the Tenant Christmas Maker’s Market

January 15, 2024

Foundation Housing is committed to providing community engagement opportunities to support tenant community involvement and independence.

In December, the FHL team celebrated the festive season and the incredible talents of their tenants and residents at a special Christmas Event with Earthwise Community in Subiaco.

The inaugural Christmas Maker’s Market saw ten tenants showcase their handmade artwork, weaving, photography, card-making, candles, affirmation jars and so much more! It was a great day for so many talented people living in a FHL home to come together and showcase their talents in the community – and make some money whilst doing so! Tenant guests received a $10 voucher on the day to spend on the market and over $1000 was made by makers by the end of the day.

Every guest walked away with a gift from the spinning wheel organised by the special elves, a coffee from the Grow & Grind van by 55 Central, something from the op-shop or even some face paint!

Foundation Housing is pleased to partner with like-minded organisations to deliver events such as the Maker’s Market.

“What an amazing day I have had, thank you everyone at Foundation Housing!” Deb.
