About us

Āwhina is a website for the homeless community, by the homeless community. We’re passionate about connecting those in need with the the people who can help – and we’re just getting started.


Everything listed on Āwhina is homeless-friendly. We cover services related to emergency housing, meals, health services, counselling, legal advice and more, with contributions by homeless Aucklanders and the good people from Auckland City Mission, Lifewise, New Zealand Prostitutes’ Collective and Youthline.

If you think something’s missing from our directory, we’d love to hear about it. Help us grow Āwhina by suggesting new services, activities or information through the contact us page.

The project is generously supported by the Community Empowerment Unit at Auckland City Council. Thank you for helping us empower our community!
