About Us

Building Angels' aim is to offer relief in the form of building and trade works to those people experiencing hardship due to misadventure, incapacity, illness and climatic disasters.
We acknowledge that a home offers stability and supports their existence and well-being.

About

History

Building Angels was founded in NSW as an Australian charity in 2013 by Mr Rocco Falcomata who has over 50 years in the Australian building industry. He started from a basis of creating a better and brighter future for those in need by using his own strengths and relationships within the building and property industry to help people in need.

He first helped families and individuals by bringing together suppliers and services for remediation work on their homes, and personally provided project management and consulting for these projects.

His natural talents and success in bringing people together with the provision of ‘in kind’ services gave him the determination to reach a wider community need.

Our Vision

Building Angels vision is to expand the charity’s reach and increase the number of individuals and charities we support. We will continue to build a unique model and collaborative system of support with the aim to garner contribution from the wider building community.  

Our Team

Building Angels is governed by a strong team and supports individual experiencing financial hardship that are in need of urgent home repairs and modifications.

Building Angels allows the wider building industry, other charities and community organisations to all work together through either direct donations or pledging services (pro-bono) and materials (in kind).

Building Angels facilitates those wanting to give-back and contribute, by using their strengths and skill sets to give directly to those in need and in so doing, build a sense of charity in the community and support Building Angels  in achieving our charitable goals and help people rebuild their homes so that they can rebuild their lives.

Josie Parata

CEO/Case Manager Lighthouse for the Community

“Sometimes life does not go to plan through a change in circumstance or if a disaster strikes. The impact of this can affect people, those they care about and results in homes that are left in a state of ruin or disrepair, or they can be unsafe or a health hazard.”
