155 Open Arms features in K Road Chronicles: Season 2

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.
