You don’t know where you’ll be sleeping tonight
Community housing groups are finding ways to connect New Zealanders to somewhere they can call home. They’re collaborating with others to create neighbourhoods where housing is about people not real estate and where all New Zealanders are well-housed.
PEOPLE PROVIDED WITH HOMES SO FAR
A Vision for NZ
Across New Zealand families are living in overcrowded, damp, cold miserable accommodation, with no security of tenure and often no sense of community support.
Community Housing Aotearoa, the peak body for New Zealand's community housing sector, is working with our members to provide warm, dry, safe and affordable homes throughout New Zealand.
Many more New Zealanders need homes and the community housing sector has a plan - Our Place - with a goal of 50,000 more people housed by 2020.
All New Zealanders well-housed
We see a future where people live in connected communities where families from every income level have a secure home that is warm, dry, easy to take care of, affordable and where households can thrive.

Drawing the line – how many state houses do we need?
Alan Johnson, Social Policy Director at The Salvation Army in NZ, presented at an Australasian Housing Insititute event in Auckland on Thursday 21st July. Alan's presentation provided a critique of the Government’s stance that the overall numbers of state housing should reduce to 60,000 by 2017. He argued that the provision of state housing should be based on the type and extent of need and a clear understanding of the interventions required to address this need.
