The current housing market has pushed the dream of homeownership well and truly beyond a reality for most ordinary New Zealanders and even more so for families who are dependent on a low income from state agencies.
He Korowai Trust has developed a strategy called Whare Ora. It is a real attempt to help families that are living in unhealthy conditions and genuinely struggling to make ends meet by moving them into a safe and healthy environment, homes that the family will ultimately own. Not only do they become homeowners, but also they get a whole range of services that help ensure a continued Whare Ora.
