Why we help

The need for family-focused, holistic, evidence-based services such as ours, is well documented:

  • Police in Canterbury receive a domestic violence call out every four minutes
  • Nearly half the people living in women’s refuges in Aotearoa are children
  • New Zealand has the highest youth suicide rate in the developed world
