The Hamilton Christian Nightshelter Trust is a registered Charitable Trust, founded in 1999 as an ecumenical response to homelessness in Hamilton. We provide the basic human need of shelter, operating two emergency Shelters in Hamilton City: A Men`s Shelter within the central city area, which can accommodate up to 27 guests and a Women`s Shelter in Hamilton East, which can accommodate up to nine guests. Three fulltime staff and around 10 volunteers govern and manage this work.

The Vision of the Hamilton Christian Nightshelter Trust is to provide: ‘Safe and Supportive Emergency Shelter’. Our Mission is to operate emergency Shelters in Hamilton, providing emergency shelter and accommodation for Hamilton’s homeless and transient people; facilitating the necessary support for the welfare of these people – and to raise awareness of, and advocate about Homelessness in Aotearoa/New Zealand.

During the year ending 30 June 2019, the Hamilton Christian Nightshelter Trust provided 10,745 bed-nights of emergency accommodation for nearly 250 guests - both men and women.

    Hi I have become aware of your need at the night shelter during the coronavirus from the article in the Waikato Times. I am in the privileged position of being paid my salary and being at home over the next 4 1:2 weeks. I worked out I’m saving $150 a week in costs by not going out in my car and incidental things I buy that I can’t now so this money is sharing my savings with you . I hope it helps a little in this difficult time.
