Building homes. Building hope

Proudly sitting on a site owned by Iosis in Hutt Road, these 21 units provide brand new homes for whānau in the local community – many of whom were waiting to get onto the Social Housing Register. This Iosis initiative has increased the number of dwellings on this site from one to 21 homes.

“Our Hutt Road development has been an extremely rewarding project for the board and team at Iosis,” says Andrea Page, Iosis Chairperson. “As a small agency in South Auckland, we have been able to contribute significantly to one of the greatest needs amongst our community – housing. This means 21 families from South Auckland now have a new, safe and warm home.”

Andrea would like to acknowledge Emerge Aotearoa who came on board in partnership with Positive Properties during the later part of the development, and will manage the accommodation going forward. “Social housing is a specialised area so once the project was off the ground, we sought a partner that was experienced in managing social housing accommodation,” she explains. Emerge have all the credentials we were looking for in a Community Housing Provider (CHIP), the most important of which was a shared vision and values. The relationship with Emerge allows Iosis to serve the community by doing what it does best – providing social services – while Emerge are experts in social housing. It is a wonderful outcome for all concerned.”

Our thanks to all our supporters for helping us get this life-changing project off the ground.
