Episode 3: 155 Open Arms, Whangārei
Our friend, Carmen, features in episode three of the second season of The K Rd Chronicles, which looks to understand the struggles of small-town homeless communities.
Carmen volunteers in our 155 Open Arms kitchen, and shares her story with journalist Six.
We established 155 Open Arms to give the homeless a place to shower, wash clothes, eat and socialise.
“People have challenges in their lives, but everyone has stories of strength, hope and resilience. We’ve been able to give them a place in which we can all come together and share their stories” - 155 CEO Liz Cassidy Nelson.
