Impact Partners

The Wellington Women’s House is a safe home for women on low incomes or in transition. Essentially, we provide women with a safe and warm environment that often is greatly needed to get themselves back on their feet. We have a small, dedicated team of staff who help ensure everything at the house runs smoothly. They provide support and advocacy to our residents, helping them access services and entitlements, and prepare for a move into their own permanent housing. The house is managed by our Management Committee, which is made up of a small group of volunteers.  We depend on the generosity of the volunteers, donors and organisations who support the house. They give us their time and energy, as well as financial support and donated goods, to help us provide a safe haven to wāhine in need. Our vision is that every woman in Wellington has a safe and comfortable home that enables her to meet her needs. The house is available to anyone who identifies as a women over the age of 18, and we are a LGBTQ+ friendly home.

Social Supermarket

In a shift from the traditional City Mission food parcel model the Mission’s Social Supermarket, a store located in Newtown, puts shopper experience and choice at its heart. Instead of collecting a pre-selected food parcel, you will be able to choose your own grocery items from a wide selection of food and essentials in a normal supermarket environment.

The Social Supermarket is open and free to anyone across the Wellington region who needs some extra help. This includes those currently being supported by or new to The Mission and those being supported or referred by other social service agencies.
