Our vision: Every child and young person growing up in a secure, loving family and receiving a depth of care which will bless them throughout their life.
Our mission: Providing Quality, Child-Centred, Family-Focused, Christian Social Services
The Open Home Foundation of New Zealand is a Child and Family Support Service that works within the provisions of the Children, Young Persons and Their Families Act 1989. Open Home Foundation staff and volunteers are from a variety of Christian Church denominations. We respect the diversity of belief and ethnicity found within our nation. We encourage children and parents to be proud of their family/whānau and cultural heritage. In particular, we have a commitment to work in a manner which is honouring to Māori, and reflects the Treaty of Waitangi. www.ohf.org.nz/

Providing practical opportunities for people to support each other so that lives and neighbourhoods are transformed.
Good Neighbour has four arms:
Neighbourhood Projects: focuses on meeting peoples needs through practical projects in the community
Food Rescue: focuses on distributing food good enough to eat (that otherwise would be going to waste in landfill) to charities.
Community gardens: where people can rent a small garden to grow vegetables together.
Good Neighbour Kitchen: kitchen-based training and mentoring programme mixing together food that is seen as worthless with people who are currently unemployable to create food that is saleable and people who have marketable qualifications.
Maisha means Life!
We walk alongside children and youth so that they can achieve their full potential. We do this by impacting their lives, families, and communities.
All projects serve our goal of children growing up in loving, stable homes, receiving a good education and medical care. This will enable the children to positively impact their country when they grow up. At the same time, we endeavour to change the children's environment by investing in their lives, families, and communities.
