We are leading a community-wide response in Hamilton and Tauranga to help chronically homeless people get the services they need, with housing being the first priority.
Many organisations have put up their hands to be part of the solution.
Together, we're working with people who are chronically homeless to connect them with accommodation, income, employment, health and other services in their communities that will support them to live independently.
Together, we can end homelessness so that it is rare, brief and non-recurring.
Tauranga update: Our Tauranga office is coming soon! In February, Associate Housing and Urban Development Minister Jenny Salesa announced the expansion of Housing First services into Tauranga. We have appointed service manager Simone Cuers and we are working quickly to get established. At this stage, we expect our Tauranga office to be open at the beginning of June 2018. Please watch this space for updates.
