Our wide variety of services aim to help communities thrive. They address a range of needs including poverty, homelessness, substance addiction, unemployment, physical and intellectual disability, offender rehabilitation, and mental health challenges.

Our organisation is committed to empowering disadvantaged communities through our innovative services and programmes. This commitment is guided by our strategic priorities of Māori succeeding as Māori, Lived Experience and Diversity are Privileged, and Thriving Pacific Peoples.
