Social Housing

Emerge Aotearoa Housing provides quality social housing to families and individuals on a low income that could not otherwise afford suitable accommodation. Our houses are located in the North and South Islands.

We recognise that New Zealand has a shortage of social and affordable housing, with growing numbers of people on waiting lists, so we have been working hard to increase our number of houses. Over the last few years, the Emerge Aotearoa Housing Trust has been involved in several housing developments and we have purchased and leased properties to build a significant housing portfolio. We are a registered Class 1 - Social Landlord with the Community Housing Regulatory Authority.

We work closely with many community housing networks across the country, including the Auckland Community Housing Providers' Network (ACHPN), the Wellington Community Housing Providers' Network, Te Waipounamu Community Housing Providers Network and we are a member of Community Housing Aotearoa (CHA). Emerge Aotearoa is a partner in Housing First Christchurch, the Aro Mai Housing First Collaboration in Wellington, and Te Tahi Whare Ora, Housing First Hawkes Bay.
