We’ll work together and support you to manage your wellbeing and your budget, including any debt you may have. We'll also help you be a good neighbour and link you to the agencies in your community which can give you more support if and when you need it. We have a portfolio of properties in various locations.

Rapid Permanent Housing

If you need a home, we will work with you to find permanent housing as quickly as possible by using the Housing First approach. This means we will help you to find a home first and then link you to the wrap-around support you need to live well. Permanent housing doesn’t mean the same address forever – we understand that your needs and circumstances change so we will work with you to make sure you always have a place to call home. In Auckland, we’re part of the Housing First Auckland collective – a group of five services working together to end homelessness. But you’ll also find our housing services in other areas across the country, including Hamilton, Rotorua, New Plymouth, Whanganui and Christchurch.
