Description

Te Hou Ora Whānau Services is a community-based whānau driven Kaupapa Māori service provider. We provide services that will equip and empower young people and their whānau to fufill their potential in the context of their cultural heritage, their whānau, and their community.

Te Hou Ora has been supporting young people, whānau and the community of Ōtepoti since 1976 when it was established under the banner of Youth for Christ. Since then, Te Hou Ora has diversified and transformed itself to meet the growing needs and trends in our community as well as become its own kaupapa Māori entity.

We pride ourselves on having the ability to continuously meet the needs of our young people and whānau through our current programmes and services as well as innovative initiative.
