Funding Stories

Te Hou Ora Whānau Services is a Kaupapa Māori service provider that seeks to empower tamariki, rangatahi and whānau to reverse cycles of hardship and create positive opportunities for themselves within the context of their cultural identity through the application of reo me ngā tikanga Māori.

In early 2023 Otago Community Trust was pleased to support Te Hou Ora Whānau Services providing funding (over three years) to establish a project management team within Te Hou Ora Whānau Services. The team will provide vital capability to the organisation and support the development and roll-out of four new Te Hou Ora Whānau Services initiatives targeting 0-24-year-olds.
