After seeing a real need for clothing for children uplifted from their homes and placed into care with nothing, we had the idea for Helping Families.
Helping Families is a way to support local families with some of the essentials required to raise children, so they can thrive and reach their full potential. However it’s not just children who need assistance, so we aim to help anyone who needs it. We believe no family should struggle alone.
In the Nelson/Tasman region we’re fortunate to have a community that is willing to help others in need. We tap into that community spirit by accepting donations of clothing, bedding, toys, books and other household goods, which we can then distribute to those who need it.
We also receive donations of money to fund essential costs and undertake specific projects.
We work directly with people in need, as well as community organisations and other charities.
