The Auckland City Mission provides unique and specialised health and social services to people in desperate need, helping them to move forward. The work of the Mission is constantly developing as the political, economic and social climate changes. Over the life of the Mission they have extended their work directly into the community and increased their advocacy role in order to offer relevant solutions to those who come to them for help.
The Mission offers hope to individuals and families who may be experiencing a temporary set back or a long-term problem that needs expert attention. They provide the immediate assistance required e.g. food, clothing, bedding, and work with the individual or family to find a workable, long term solution to the issues they face.
Thousands of Aucklanders rely on the services of the Mission at some point in their lives. Support provided includes:
- Homeless Programmes
- Providing food, clothing & furniture to families in crisis
- Supporting isolated elderly
- Distributing donated goods to food banks and community groups in the Auckland region
- Assisting people to overcome drug and alcohol addictions
As society has grown more complex, issues faced by Mission clients and others who are excluded have increased. The core issues of poverty and marginalisation have not changed, but the ways these impact on the lives of clients has and does. Mission services adapt to meet new issues and needs which arise.
