Auckland City Mission provides practical help & works on long-term solutions
Since 1920, Auckland City Mission has been helping Auckland families in desperate need. The Mission is of the few remaining social service providers in Auckland’s inner city. We provide assistance to individuals and families who may be experiencing a temporary setback, such as a job loss, or who face a long-term issue, such as a health concern, that requires professional attention.
Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, the Mission provides food, advocacy, and a range of professional social services including homeless activities & casework, crisis care, medical and drug & alcohol support to Aucklanders who have nowhere else to turn.
In the 2016 financial year, the City Mission:
- Distributed $1.48 million worth of food including through Foodlink, our Community Food Programme that supports 35 food banks and community organisations
- Provided 13,714 food parcels to families and individuals
- Supported 128 homeless people into housing
- Completed 10,339 health consultations with high-needs patients at our low-cost medical centre
We couldn’t have done any of this without the help and generosity of all our fantastic supporters. Thank you so much.
