Our Purpose


Parents cannot create a safe, nurturing environment for their children if the important relationships in their own lives are dysfunctional. Therefore our work is uniquely focussed on restoring relationships by addressing past trauma; resourcing families with tools to live well; and reconnecting people with opportunities to study, work and give back to their community.

restored + resourced + reconnected = resilient

OUR VISION

To see once vulnerable families living well and children given every opportunity to reach their full potential.

OUR MISSION

To restore, resource and reconnect South Auckland's most at-risk families.

OUR VALUES

Faith, Family, Partnership, Stewardship.

Working primarily in South Auckland, Te Whakaora Tangata is a Christian, faith-based organisation. The values of faith, family, partnership and stewardship underpin our work with 150-200 parents every year, directly impacting 300-400 vulnerable children. The success of Te Whakaora's work is not only reflected by the number of families strengthened, but by the reality of hope-filled relationships and the breakdown of intergenerational cycles of family dysfunction.
