  About the organization

Auckland City Mission has, for over 100 years, provided a range of Social Services for those in desperate need. While the people, their needs and consequently our services have changed over that time our philosophy of giving not charity, but a chance has not.

The services we offer at present are focused on giving a chance to people who are sleeping rough or who are inadequately housed, those who struggle with food insecurity, with drug and alcohol addiction, who need affordable primary healthcare, or any of the above and more.
