ABOUT US

Tai Tokerau Emergency Housing Charitable Trust (TTEHCT) was born out of the WEAR group (Whangarei Emergency Accommodation Response) whose members signed a "Memorandum of Understanding" in March 2004 with community organisations that were concerned about the homelessness in Whangarei.

TTEHCT was registered as an Incorporated Society in September 2006 with the backing of several local churches after a collaborative research project undertaken by government and community organisations in 2005 identified the critical need for supportive short term accommodation for people and families in our area.

TTEHCT is the specialist provider of temporary emergency accommodation in Whangarei.​

TTEHCT STAFF

Our staff team consists of a Kaiārahi/Manager who is an active participant of the Northland Housing Forum. The Kaiārahi/Manager is supported by the Office & Properties Administrator, Assessments & Tenancy Manager, Accounts Administrator, Contracts, Funding & Projects Administrator and three Social Workers. Four House Managers and four Assistant House Managers are also a key part of our service that aims to support our tenants into affordable and sustainable long-term housing. The staff team places huge importance on service delivery with the highest integrity encompassing whakawhanaungatanga (building and maintaining relationships), manaakitanga (compassionate care) and aroha (love).
