Welcome to our whare
We are a community whare providing wraparound support services for whānau in Taitokerau Northland
155 Whare Āwhina is a place where you and your whānau are valued, respected and accepted for who you are.
We are community advocates, lawyers and social workers here to help you and your whānau. We provide free legal advice through our three 155 Community Law centres, can help with whānau support, WINZ, housing, and are here to support anyone who is homeless with shelter at our 155 Open Arms day centre.
Our food bank provides free food parcels twice a week, and our friendly team at 155 Open Arms serves free meals twice a day, six days a week.
So come in to our whare for a cuppa and explore your future options with us.
If there's a gap, 155 will fill it
"155 is a place where people can come in and have a cup of tea and a chat. No problem is too tough, hard, too big or too small. There’s always a listening ear and a keenness to see people well and safe. There’s courageousness too. If there’s a gap, 155 will fill it."
