Social Service


A safe place to sleep for those without shelter.

We provide homeless men in Tauranga immediate access to safe and warm transitional accommodation. 

The Trust’s mission statement is to provide the homeless people in Tauranga Moana temporary shelter and access to services designed to break the cycle of homelessness and offer hope of a better future for themselves and our community.

Our staff will be your strongest advocates and are dedicated to helping you get back on your feet. Our team are kind, supportive, non-judgemental and are passionate about helping you.

Takitimu House is operated under the Tauranga Moana Nightshelter Trust.

How do I access this service?

Contact us, Make an appointment, Referral, Walk in


There is a charge that is managed through Work and Income if you are receiving a benefit.  Charges are no more than 25% of your income.  If you are on a job seeker benefit that would normally be around $54 dollars per week paid direct from source.  If you have no income at all that does not preclude you from entry to Takitimu House, we are still more than happy to provide a service to you.  


Takitimu House provides 24/7 transitional housing and psychosocial support.

New referrals and intake between the hours of 8am-4.30pm weekdays.
