About Us

We respond to community need through the ideas and hopes of people who come to spend time with us.

About 155 Whare Awhina

Our whare is a vibrant and inclusive community hub providing a range of services to support and advocate for whānau in need. We also incubate community development projects that contribute to a better future for our community whānau.

By taking care to listen to the needs of our communities, we also have a role in keeping our country’s policy and decision-makers informed of the issues we are seeing. It is a privilege that whānau trust us enough to tell us their stories of hardship and success so we can support them with their sovereignty.
