Provide support and serve as kaitiaki to the vulnerable, particularly those who have experienced domestic violence.

Main image

The Aunties are a group of people who for various reasons - empathy, experience, and a sense of social justice - seek to provide support and serve as kaitiaki to the vulnerable, particularly those who have experienced domestic violence.

The Aunties believe everyone has the right to be safe, to have shelter, to be fed, to be loved, to dream, to read, to write, to have their say, and to be heard. Where any of those things are missing, the Aunties mission is to help provide them - the practical things, and also in terms of advocacy and pastoral care.

The Aunties believe in manaakitanga - protecting the mana of the people they help so that they can find their way towards living independently, and with dignity and joy.

A huge thanks  22 May 2019

I just wanted to personally thank all of you for keeping this ship afloat.

On Monday, I recieved a Queens Service Medal, which was a huge honour, but really a symbol of the work you continue to support me to do.

Whether it's food shopping, new glasses for an older woman or teen girl, heaters, blankets, bedding, outings, our regular payment to Te Whãnau Rangimarie....the list is endless of things and experiences that you continue to enable me to give to people who are really having a tough time of it.

And that's what the honour means to me.

I am just the face of this large army of very generous and loving human beings, and I thank you for allowing me to represent you, and carry your hearts into the lives of (mostly) women who are healing from, or in the midst of, family violence. Bless you.
