DCM works at the tough end of things. When people have no money, no food and no roof over their heads, they come to us.

Housing Poverty Food

Each week DCM works with some 150 people, supporting them to make dramatic changes in their lives. Most of these meet the New Zealand definition of homelessness or are at risk of homelessness; we work with them to find housing, access their correct benefit entitlements, manage their money, and connect with family and a range of health and other services.

“I felt I had no purpose in life, and I didn't care; but the staff at DCM were prepared to go out of their way to help me. They helped me get back on a benefit and get my own place. I'm attending AA and I haven't needed a food parcel or special grant in a long time.” (Richard)
