The Housing Foundation’s mission is to relieve poverty by providing affordable housing for low income households in New Zealand. The Housing Foundation provides programmes that will enable people, over time, to move in to sustainable and affordable independent housing.
Since 2007 it has completed 750 homes with another 200 homes programmed to be completed over the next few years in a number of developments across Auckland, Christchurch and other areas.
The Housing Foundation specialises in assisting low income working families to lift themselves out of the rental poverty trap on pathways towards independence. This transition is supported through two key products namely: Rent to Buy and Shared Home Ownership.
