Takitimu House provides the homeless men in Tauranga Moana temporary shelter and access to services designed to break the cycle of homelessness. Their team walks alongside the men who utilise the shelter to begin rebuilding their lives.
Individuals are supported to reach for their goals no matter how big or small. They operate with a ‘whatever it takes’ philosophy.
"This is so relevant to the people we work with. Generally they are quickly judged, labeled and put in a box. In our experience, most don't fit that box, they only need a pathway, love and support. The cookie thief, a powerful short story."
In 2019 Takitimu House received funding from the J Chappell-Mathias Fund.
