Mōrena! Thank you for this generous koha to support the Warm Up Ōtaki (and Beyond) project. We've been busy re-jigging our program for this season and now we are offering healthy home assessments from our Healthy Homes Assessor, Matt. These are free for lower income households. After this assessment , we support whānau to access the Warmer Kiwi Homes subsidised insulation, perhaps get repurposed curtains and draught-stoppers from our Curtain Bank operation or organise small home repairs that will make their home warmer and drier. Your gift is an important part of making this happen. Ngā mihi nui / Thank you very much!
