The housing partnership is between Ngāti Toa, Kāinga Ora and the Ministry of Housing and Urban Development.

Te Āhuru Mōwai (Ngāti Toa’s community housing provider) will carry out the tenancy management, maintenance and upgrades of the Kāinga Ora properties in Western Porirua and parts of Tawa / Linden.

The partnership is about Te Āhuru Mōwai, improving and upgrading houses in western Porirua, parts of Tawa and Lindeb over time, making them warmer and drier and providing homes for people whānau.

We also work closely with the Ministry of Social Development, who are responsible for working with people who need housing, income and employment support and helping access long-term accommodation.
