New Emergency housing for Gisborne

Aug 14, 2017 | News

The former motel was bought by the Government in June for emergency housing. Mrs Tolley said the complex had been renovated and residents did not have to bring anything except their personal belongings. People could stay for 12 weeks.

Ms Adams said the transitional housing places were not merely a case of providing housing for 12 weeks, then having to find other accommodation.

The services were broad-based and intensive, and as important as “the roof over your head”. Residents were not thrown out after 12 weeks if they had nowhere to go.

Ms Adams said most went on to social or private housing, with some previously hindered in finding accommodation by issues such as drugs, alcohol and/or debt.

The Government would build another 6500 social houses over the next three years,’’ said Ms Adams.
