Community Health Service


What We Do
The Wellington City Mission has been helping those most in need in the Wellington region for over 110 years. Our Vision is to see people and communities empowered, transformed, and experiencing fullness of life.

Through our four key programmes – Mission for Families, Mission for Youth, Mission for Independence and Mission for Seniors – we provide holistic support to those who need help. Some of the ways we offer assistance include through our Foodbank, Drop-in Centre and Financial Mentoring service, along with social work support and advocacy. We also operate an elder care residential facility called Kemp Home & Hospital, and we have two City Mission Stores (on Taranaki St in Wellington City and Jackson St in Petone).

Mission for Families
Early intervention for families through advocacy, education, support and guidance, equipping families to better manage their own circumstances.

Mission for Youth
A comprehensive Alternative Education programme for youth who have disengaged or been excluded from mainstream schools, providing a place of belonging, life-skills, and new opportunities.

Mission for Independence
Guiding, supporting and equipping financially disadvantaged and unemployed people towards independence and self-management. Services include our Newtown Drop-in Centre, Foodbank, Financial Mentoring, and Community Services Advocate.
