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
Here in New Zealand we are faced with an inter-generational problem of inadequate housing that needs to be fixed now.
Community housing organisations are working across the country to find local solutions to local housing issues and Community Housing Aotearoa are supporting them to do this.
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 2030. That's 1,000 homes a year.
We want to know that all New Zealanders are well-housed and living in homes that are: habitable, affordable,accessible, secure, and culturally appropriate. How well are we doing?
