Harris family proposes building 57 portable houses for Melbourne’s homeless

A plan has been unveiled to build 57 one bedroom portable houses for the homeless.

It’d funded by a wealthy Melbourne family.

Geoff Harris, who founded Flight Centre, and his family are proposing the houses be built on government owned land at Footscray and Maidstone.

The cost would be more than $4 million.

The homes could be moved if VicRoads needs the land back one day.

Philanthropist Brad Harris told Ross and John it would also help the economy.

‘They’re built in a Victorian factory, so jobs in Victoria for homes in Victoria,’ he said on 3AW Breakfast.
