About This Appeal

The Cost of living means Kiwi families are having to make some really tough choices


The Salvation Army’s transitional housing programme provides safe short-term accommodation for families in need. While in the service families are supported by skilled professionals to address their immediate needs, providing wraparound support services to put them on a better footing so they can secure suitable long-term accommodation.

The wraparound support services can include food parcels, financial mentoring, counselling, and advocacy. It can also include creating links with other Salvation Army services or connecting whānau with community-based support organisations and/or local marae, for example. 

Once families have been placed into long-term sustainable accommodation, support is continued for a further twelve weeks to ensure the success of the families in that accommodation.
