Auckland Series #1 of ‘Vintaged goods and Urban Hoods’

A familiar nomad to Auckland’s streets. He walks a lonely shadowy feat: hunched, back arched and burdened.

A Housing First pilot strategy was launched on the 23rd of March 2017 and provides housing for the homeless, adopting a Canadian government initiative. Currently $3.7 million is provided by the New Zealand government and under the mayorship of Phil Goff, Auckland Council has provided $1 million this year towards alleviating homelessness. In the last year, Auckland City Mission has housed 128 homeless people.

  1. 42 K homeless … 33K empty ghost houses in Ak. A shame on a nation that once prided itself on full employment & housing for all. Thanks especially to the Key govt/corporation.
