We Need Your Help

Our food boxes are going to homes that need Christchurch’s help in tough times. Our emergency accommodation quarters are caring for men and women with nowhere else to go, our residential detox unit patients continue to quit their addictions, our social workers and addiction counsellors are giving support and love to those filled with despair.

You can help us.

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.
