155 Whare Āwhina is a place where you and your whānau are valued, respected and accepted for who you are.
We're community change makers, lawyers and social workers here to help you and your whānau.
We run the busy social supermarket 155 Whare Kai where anyone can book an appointment to shop.
Through our 155 Community Law centres in Whangārei and Kaikohe we provide free legal advice and education.
While down at 155 Open Arms our Awhi Whānau team can assist with housing navigation, WINZ, and develop a wellbeing plan for you. Here you can also rest, use our shower facilities and enjoy breakfast and lunch six days a week.
So come in to our whare for a cuppa and explore your future options with us.
If there's a gap, 155 will fill it
"155 is a place where people can come in and have a cup of tea and a chat. No problem is too tough, hard, too big or too small. There’s always a listening ear and a keenness to see people well and safe. There’s courageousness too. If there’s a gap, 155 will fill it."
