The Christchurch City Mission Te Whare Mīhana Ki Ōtautahi is a social services agency that helps anyone who needs it regardless of their circumstances. We take on the hardest cases with love and optimism. While our emergency care is vital, we also provide much more than that. Through education and training we help struggling people re-join society and gain the self-esteem and happiness that comes from work, independence and permanent housing. We have seen people’s lives transform with our support and believe everyone should have the opportunity of a second chance.
