We are working with a other community members including EmpowermentNZ http://www.nzherald.co.nz/bay-of-plenty-times/news/article.cfm?c_id=1503343&objectid=11662758
They set up a chariatable Trust in 2016 to help those in need in Te Puke. Currently they manage the Foodbank and offer a number of other social services.
They were interested in and tried to set up a homeless shelter in the old RSA building, but was not achievable at that time. They are looking for another location for the night shelter.
