Island Child

Danielle is the Manager of Island Child Charitable Trust based in Glen Innes, and will tell us about they work they do. The Trust is a small grassroots organisation with a big heart making a sustainable difference in the lives of whānau facing a housing crisis. It successfully rehomes between 48-55 whānau (residential and non-residential clients) each year, depending on available housing. Their goal is to assist more individuals and families. The Trust provides transitional housing and a 12-week residential programme that operates 24/7 from premises in Glen Innes and in a neighbouring suburb. At any one time they can host up to 12 families or a total of 40 people across three properties.
