How we help

Any kind of family violence is not ok. This includes mind games (emotional abuse), financial, physical or sexual violence.

We provide immediate support to keep you safe in times of crisis but we are so much more than a safe house. We have a team of highly trained, multi-skilled family violence specialists who can provide tailored support to guide you and your whānau. 

We aim to empower women to find strength within themselves and we help them lead their own journey. We aim to grow stronger families which can take many different forms.
