Work that makes a difference

Who we are

The People’s Project has a goal to make homelessness in Hamilton and Tauranga rare, brief and non-recurring. We want to end homelessness for every person we work with – so people never have to be homeless again.

We do this by using the evidence-based Housing First approach.  Housing First is an enduring support for as long as it is needed, to help people sustain their tenancies. This includes supporting access to physical or mental health services, seeking employment, or mentoring a relationship with a landlord. We do whatever it takes to support people to stay in their homes.

If you believe we can work together to end homelessness, come join us

Homelessness is a complex issue that takes a community responding together. In our experience, having the right people around the table makes all the difference.

Since launching in 2014, The People’s Project has been held up as an exemplar of taking collaborative action to successfully address homelessness.

In our team, no two days are ever the same. It’s a high energy environment where you are supported by your colleagues as we venture together into uncharted waters, driving social innovation and leading systems change.

Most importantly, we never give up. We believe everyone must have a home to live in and the right to live their best life.

The People’s Project offers challenging, rewarding work where you can make a visible difference in people’s lives – every day.
