Just Housing Ōtepoti is a Charitable Trust established in 1995 to help low-income families into affordable, sustainable housing. It successfully built two houses in Brockville and assisted occupants into ownership. It has helped renovate two homes, donated a section to Habitat for Humanity and insulated a further 30 homes.

In 2004 the Trustees entered a Memorandum of Understanding with Presbyterian Support Otago to apply the Trust’s remaining assets of $130,000 to a social housing project to build four new rental homes on land in Whakaari, Dunedin. These houses are for low-income families to rent and comprise of 2 x 2-bedroom and 2 x 3-bedroom homes. The project was jointly funded by Just Housing Ōtepoti and Housing New Zealand Corporation.

The total cost of the project was $1.3 million with Just Housing Ōtepoti contributing $187,000. The remainder being made up with a Suspensory Loan from HNZC, and a Grant from the HNZC Housing Innovation Fund.

The four new homes were officially opened by David Parker on 20th December 2006.
