We've been operating in Tauranga since June 2019. The figures below represent the team’s current caseload. The success of Housing First is its effectiveness in ending people’s homelessness. This outcome is measured by the proportion of people we work with who remain in their homes. The international findings are that between 80 and 88 per cent of people in Housing First programmes, will remain in their homes.
In addition to the outcomes below, we've also provided assistance to another 147 people with advice and guidance to help find a home.
68% Single males
32% Single females
The team is currently working with adults who have been rough sleeping in Tauranga. Males account for two-thirds of the people we work with, and one-third are single females.
6% Housing New Zealand
Housing stock in Tauranga is our biggest challenge. All our clients would move into a home today if the housing was available. Many clients qualify for and are on the register for public housing, but demand for public housing in Tauranga is very high. That's why private landlords are an incredibly important partner. We sincerely thank the Tauranga landlords who are supporting The People's Project.
