Throughout New Zealand, The Salvation Army provide long-term rental housing to individuals and families. This is called Salvation Army Social Housing. We provide tenancy management for whānau and individuals in a variety of locations and property types. Many of our homes are located together in communities or villages. The Salvation Army provides support and education for helping tenants to sustain their tenancies and link tenants to Salvation Army wraparound services and other social service providers such as addiction support, mental health support, budgeting, food assistance and whānau support.
The Government (Ministry of Social Development) allocate these houses to those in most need. Anyone seeking housing must be eligible and have applied for the Housing Register (through MSD). You cannot apply directly to Salvation Army Social Housing for a tenancy.
