Our housing services team work with people and whanau in urgent need of housing, providing a tailormade wraparound support programme. We aim to empower and connect people to community and services, enabling them to work towards achieving their goals, including sustainable housing, further education, and employment. All referrals to transitional housing are made by the Ministry of Social Development (MSD).
As a registered Community Housing Provider (CHP) and landlord, TCHT can provide affordable housing to those who qualify for Social Housing. TCHT owns and leases an extensive property portfolio throughout the Bay of Plenty. Our team of tenancy managers support our clients to sustain their tenancies.
The Friendly Landlord Programme is a partnership between TCHT and the Bay of Plenty District Health Board (BOPDHB). Mental health service users have a better chance of succeeding when supported in independent and sustainable accommodation.
The Bay of Plenty Healthy Homes Initiative (BOPHHI) identifies eligible families, working with them to carry out a comprehensive housing assessment and complete an individualised action plan to create a warmer, drier, healthier home.
BOPHHI supports families to access the interventions they need to create a healthier living environment, especially for their children.
TCHT’s Housing Facilitation Service is targeted toward people living with a disability or chronic health condition, who also have an unmet housing need. We work alongside clients to identify appropriate and sustainable housing options. We continue to work with the client as they transition into sustainable accommodation.
Referrals are made by Support Net, BOPDHB.
Due to the chronic shortage of one and two bedroom homes in our region, TCHT continue to advocate for the development of further innovative housing solutions for our clients, We work with local council, health services, private developers, other housing providers and government to increase the supply available for our clients
