Together we can end homelessness in Tāmaki Makaurau

Housing is a human right

Guided by our kaupapa Māori framework Tāiki and the five principles of Housing First, we walk alongside whānau so they can access appropriate housing and wrap-around services. People experiencing homelessness can face complex challenges, including mental health, substance use, disconnection to whānau and whenua, and trauma. To begin healing, whānau must first have a home.

Understanding homelessness

While some whānau who experience homelessness are very visible, in particular, those who sleep on the streets, other whānau couch surf or sleep in a car or garage. To end homelessness, we must understand and define it.

Ensuring homelessness is rare, brief and non-recurring

We are a collective of six non government organisations our Housing First providers are Auckland City Mission, Kāhui Tū Kaha, Lifewise, LinkPeople and Visionwest with backbone support provided by the Wise Group. Working together strengthens our ability to walk alongside whānau to sustain their tenancies and reach their goals.
