Our Residential Services
Te Whare Hīnātore & James Liston Hostel

Te Whare Hīnātore aims to assist wāhine (or those who identify as wāhine) that are experiencing homelessness and/or are rough sleeping, to improve their social and psychological wellbeing through providing a quality kaupapa Māori service within a cohesive therapeutic, and ethical framework. The recently refurbished James Liston Hostel is a transitional housing hostel operating 24/7 that supports up to 50 clients who previously were homeless/rough sleeping. The service provides a safe base from which support is offered to access services and aid transition into permanent housing situations.
