Everyone has the right to a healthy home and potential to live well. That belief drives everything we do for the people in our communities.

We follow the Housing First philosophy, because we know that having a stable and suitable home is the foundation of a person’s wellbeing.

Our priority is to help people find permanent, stable housing and work with them to ensure they can access the health, social and wellbeing support they need to help them stay there.

Ending homelessness

Homelessness is a complex issue, but it can be solved when people and organisations come together.

We work really closely with organisations, community groups, landlords and investors to support the people in our communities to find a home. Using the Housing First model, we move the person into a home first, and then link them to the wrap-around support they need to sustain their tenancy.

We couldn’t do this without the support of socially-minded landlords and investors who want to help end homelessness in New Zealand.
We are always on the lookout for more properties to rent to the people we support, and encourage landlords and investors to get in touch.
