A MĀTOU MAHI
As a kaupapa Māori provider, we provide a Whānau Ora response to ending homelessness. We incorporate the tikanga principles of Manaakitanga, Kotahitanga, Rangatiratanga and Whakawhanaungatanga.
Connecting Whānau through whakapapa and linking them back to their Whānau, Hapu and Iwi is a key outcome for us.
Ratonga Whānau is a Kaupapa Māori service who prides themselves on serving whānau across the greater Wellington region, extending as far as Whanganui. With a whānau centred approach, underpinned by the principles of Whānau Ora kaimahi support Whānau to be confident about making changes for themselves, to dream and aspire to bigger things.
“He kai kei aku ringa”
“It is at my hands will be my success”.
In addition to our commitment to expanding our social housing portfolio and improving living conditions, we also strive to provide service delivery through a Te Ao Māori lens. We recognise the importance of incorporating Māori values and perspectives into our work, and we aim to do so in a respectful and meaningful way. By doing this, we can better serve our community and make a positive impact on the lives of those we work with. For Māori by Māori.
