Our Mission 

Together we stand with those in desperate need. 

We provide immediate relief and pathways to enable long term wellbeing. 

About us  

For more than 100 years, we’ve stood with Aucklanders who need us most. As Auckland’s social needs and issues have evolved, so have we. Since our doors first opened, the Mission has been supporting Aucklanders in need with services and support. The types of support have changed over the years, but our determination to help others has never wavered.

Today, people come to the Mission for many different reasons – some are rough sleepers or people living in cars and inappropriate housing. Others are battling addictions, living with mental health issues, or struggling to feed their families.

Some people access the Mission’s services to help them through a short and difficult time in their life. Others need a sustained and long-term plan for support. We offer support for however long and in whatever way needed.

Come and work with us and be a part of something truly special!

Our Values:

MANAAKITANGA

Manaakitanga is behaviour that acknowledges the mana of others as having equal or greater importance than one's own, through the expression of aroha, hospitality, generosity, and mutual respect.

JUSTICE (MANATIKA)

Committed to equity, and seeking dignity for all we will fearlessly advocate with and for those who are going without.

PARTNERSHIP (RANGAPU)

Firstly, the Auckland City Mission recognises the principle of partnership within Te Tiriti O Waitangi.

Secondly, our commitment to partnership stems from a belief that manaakitanga, equity and social justice need to be pursued both within partnerships and through them.

For us, a partnership is characterised by mutual trust, integrity, respect, transparency, and commitment.
