We're supported by...
Housing First Auckland is using a Collective Impact approach to end homelessness in Auckland; by working collectively and collaboratively we will achieve social change.
An important part of this approach is ensuring our five Housing First services are supported by a strong backbone team. This team provides the infrastructure and resources for our shared model approach, and for powering up our collective efforts in a coordinated and structured way.
We get this critical support from the Wise Group. In addition to leadership from the Group’s joint CE Julie Nelson, the communication and design, project management, data system (through Wild Bamboo) and administration support we receive from the Wise Group's shared business services allow our collective to focus on what we do best – ending homelessness.
We're governed by...
Our governance team includes representatives from the organisations that make up the collective and who support us. This team provides leadership, strategic input and consultation with our networks to promote and champion Housing First Auckland and our goal of ending homelessness in Auckland.
As our collective develops we will look to grow our governance group with members from the Ministry of Social Development, Auckland Council, Housing New Zealand, Work and Income, Corrections and the New Zealand Police. We will also have strong relationships and representation from the community, including local boards and business associations.
Our governance members currently include:
