Together, we can end homelessness

Finding someone a house is just the beginning. We continue working with people so that they can make their house, their home.

People who have been homeless often have very few personal possessions. In addition to connecting people to wrap-around support services, we also assist people to ensure their new homes are equipped with furniture and household goods, without getting into debt.

The Wise Group, established The Warehouse, to help us purchase the 150 basic household items we believe people need to set up a home. The Warehouse gives our supporters a way to give homeless people a ‘hand up’.

You can support us in three ways.

Make a donation

Help us to purchase new household goods and furniture by making a financial donation to enable us to buy items on your behalf.

You can do this by:

  1. Writing a check addressed to “Wise Management Services” and dropping it off to us the People’s Project Office at 24 Garden Place or posting it to: Wise Management Services, PO Box 307, Hamilton 3240.
  2. Or make an online donation through internet banking. Our bank is Westpac and our account number is: 030306 0234985 00. Please reference “ThePeoplesProject” or “TPP Donation”

Your donation is tax deductible as Wise Management Services is a registered charity with the IRD. If you would like a receipt, please email:

Purchase and donate new household items

If you would like to buy new items yourself, these can be dropped off at the People’s Project office at 24 Garden Place or we can arrange a time to collect them from you.
