Our goal is to help people to take positive action in their lives by providing support, advice, resources, and information. We do this by offering a range of services including community education, financial mentoring, family support, counselling, youth services, and information and advice.
We are an agent of the Tauranga Food Bank and can make foodbank requests on your behalf. A number of other services use our rooms for meetings, including Bay of Plenty Addiction Services, Strengthening Families, and Oranga Tamariki.
Our services are available for people who live in the Papamoa area or in Welcome Bay. Most of our services and programmes are free, though a koha is greatly appreciated. If you would like to refer yourself for one of our services you can fill in our referral form and email it to us or come in and see us.
Our centre is in Papamoa, and we share our grounds with Te Akau Hauora Doctor and Dental Services.
We love visitors – come in and say kia ora, help yourself to free kai in the reception area, and check out the information about other services and what is going on in our community. Our doors are open weekdays 9am to 4pm.
