The Mission is experiencing unprecedented demand for food parcels during COVID-19. We are currently distributing 1,200 food parcels per week, instead of 450. We have fast tracked those in need of emergency housing and currently have 103 in temporary or...
The Auckland City Mission has now moved into Level 3 until at least Friday 14th August 11.59pm. The work that the Mission team has done previously sets the organisation in good stead to be able to quickly adapt once again. We have been here before and we can do this again.
The Mission has adapted our services to reduce the risk of community transmission and provide a safe environment for street whanau, clients, staff, volunteers and supporters.
Homeless Outreach and Support Service
Our team continues to support people who are homeless and vulnerably housed by connecting with them to check on their health and well-being, as well as provide them with essential items such as food and clothing.
We continue to run our two transitional housing units, James Liston Hostel and Te Whare Hīnātore. During COVID-19 we have also introduced a third accommodation facility to house those in need of emergency housing. We have made changes to service protocols to ensure the safety of every person using those services. This includes immediately reducing the number of people onsite by moving some residents to other suitable venues.
The Mission’s Detox centre is open. It provides a range of services for people struggling with addiction, including assessments, a residential social detoxification centre (‘Elm Street’) and a team of Community Alcohol & Drug Workers.
Haeata Food Service
Until further notice, Haeata, our dining area is open from 11.00am – 1.00pm providing takeaway bags of nutricious food. All community activities have been cancelled for the time being.
