Social Service


9:30 AM to 4:30 PM.


We empower families and individuals in our Taupo community, to develop skills to achieve financial independence - with the ability to manage the complex challenges they face on a daily basis, including those which may upset or delay their progress. We work collaboratively with other agencies in the community to help educate parents on how to build strong and healthy family units. We focus on seeking progressive resolutions and positive, sustainable life changing outcomes for our families.

As we are a not for profit, there is no fee for any person who engages in our services. We are not Government funded, yet we have been acknowledged on many occasions by Government for the outstanding work we produce within our community.
