Moana House is a well-established residential therapeutic community for adult male offenders who want to change their lives for the better.

Main image

Run by a charitable trust, the Downie Stewart Foundation, we have been in existence since 1987 when it was set up by a local Judge and someone who had been through the legal system. Those who come to the house have multiple difficulties - substance abuse, poor relationships, are victims or perpetrators of violence, have poor work skills, and difficulties in setting and achieving goals.

We have had residents achieve apprenticeships, move to tertiary study and start their own businesses after completing the programme.

Organisation details

Moana House is a residential therapeutic community in Dunedin,catering for male offenders. Run by a charitable trust, the Downie Stewart Foundation, we have been in existence since 1987 when it was set up by a local Judge and someone who had been through the legal system. Those who come to the house have multiple difficulties - substance abuse, poor relationships, are victims or perpetrators of violence, have poor work skills, and difficulties in setting and achieving goals. Moana House has successfully worked with men to achieve change.

Quote from ex-residents:

"My time with Moana House has been life changing in every sense. I am no longer a slave to my emotions in learning to take responsibility. I have become reliable and more at peace within myself, the community and my family are safe whenever I am around. "I found the love that I had been searching for"". (N.M)

"Moana House saved my life. It has opened doors that I never thought I could walk through and created endless opportunities for myself. The mission statement "Giving you a real chance" is exactly what I have been given. If you said to me three years ago "I'd be attending university, working at Moana House and getting married" I would have said your dreaming! Fa'afetai tele lava Claire". (C.S)
