Tai Tokerau Emergency Housing Charitable Trust (TTEHCT) is a Whangarei based non-profit organisation.
Compassionate Response: We respond compassionately to the immediate needs of the homeless by providing a positive, supportive and safe living environment.
Transformative Engagement: We engage and work alongside our tenants to develop individualised Housing and Action Care plans and set realistic goals, promoting change and enhancing the life skills needed to sustain a home.
Building Connections: We connect our tenants with the appropriate services and agencies to ensure their Housing and Action Care plans can be implemented and followed through.
Enabling steps to stability: We enable tenants to make steps along a pathway towards a more stable living situation and into secure housing.
Governance, Leadership and Communication: We provide effective governance, leadership and communication that enables TTEHCT to be sustainable and achieve its goals and purposes.
TTEHCT manages four of its’ own emergency accommodation properties in Whangarei – a 7 unit ex-motel (Aotea) for whanau with tamariki, an 8 unit site (Kamo) for whanau with tamariki, a large 4 bdrm house for single men and a stand-alone 3 bdrm property (Whare Manaaki) for a larger whanau. Together these provide 20 rooms/units for singles, couples and/or sole parent whanau to rent for an average of around 12 weeks. We have also collaborated with Manukau Urban Maori Authority (MUMA) where we provide House Management at a 6 bdrm residence (Whare Parihaka) within the CBD area of Whangarei that caters for up to 6 single men released from prison reintegrating back into the community.
Unfortunately due to the high demands for housing we can not always house those who are in need.
This property is a block of seven units for single parents or couples with children.
The units are furnished with the basics and there is a shared laundry.
A house manager is on site and the property is fenced and gated and has a wonderful playground for the children.
The TTEHCT office is also sited here with office staff and a social worker to work with the tenants.
This property is a four bedroom furnished home with shared facilities.
There is a house manager on site who also works alongside the men.
This home can house up to six men at one time.
