Therapeutic Group Homes
We have three group homes in Tāmaki Makaurau. Two Lighthouses, which between them provide a home for up to ten young wāhine and tāne who need a place to stay in an emergency, and one whare that provides longer-term therapeutic care for up to five rangatahi tāne.
Sometimes it’s not possible for tamariki and rangatahi to stay living at home with whānau. When this happens, we provide safe, nurturing homes where tamariki and rangatahi will be cared for and supported to thrive.
Our two Lighthouses provide a safe place to stay for rangatahi aged 11 to 17 years, often for a short period, at short notice or in an emergency.
The Lighthouses provide unplanned crisis care in times of need, such as when rangatahi have nowhere else safe to stay, or when they have committed an offence.
Stays can range from a few days to a few weeks, depending on the needs of the rangatahi.
Te Whare Tūmanako o Kia Puāwai
Te Whare Tūmanako o Kia Puāwai provides a safe, nurturing and therapeutic home for up to five young tāne who are not able to stay with whānau or other caregivers.
