We Need Your Help

Our vans are on the road with food boxes to deliver to homes, our emergency accommodation quarters are caring for men and women with nowhere else to go, residential detox unit patients continue to quit their addictions, our social workers and addiction counsellors are on the phones.

You can help us. But there’s really only one way.

More than anything else, we need your financial donation.

To all our supporters, clients and to everyone in Canterbury we wish you all the best over the next weeks which will test everyone.

I’ve been a supporter for all my working life. I like reading about life changes that are positive in our community. I understand the hardship people go through. I believe there is always a light at the end of the tunnel, many times we are that light.
B.J, Casebrook.

Breaking the barriers to a new life

For Geoff digital literacy opens a whole new world of possibilities. It makes the public library with all its computers much more than just being a warm place with a bean bag. Being able to use a computer also opens Geoff’s eyes to his own expectations on how he wants to live his life.
