Awhina House provides transitional housing support for homeless women in Tauranga.
We are a charitable organisation operating under He Kaupapa Kotahitanga Trust Tauranga
To nurture, support and advocate for homeless women in Tauranga Moana.
Awhina House offers transitional housing support for women who are homeless. We are not an emergency night shelter.
- We want to see homeless women transform their lives and make longterm change.
- We want to break the cycle of homelessness and we are committed to supporting women into their own independent housing.
- We are not a band aid solution to homelessness.
What we do
Accommodation: We have 11 transitional housing beds in our Tauranga residence. Women stay with us for a 12-week period, while we support them to find permanent accommodation.
Support: We provide a wraparound support service without judgement. We are connected with a range of local services.
Note - Awhina House is only able to support women alone. We are not able to accommodate children in our residence.
