The Lifewise Trust
Lifewise is a not-for-profit, social service organisation on a mission to address homelessness and other social issues in Tāmaki Makaurau and Rotorua. 

Our vision is for a socially just and inclusive society. We do this by challenging injustice, breathing hope and enhancing community connectedness. 

Have you heard of Merge Café? It's our café - and one like no other. Every dollar you spend here goes towards supporting those experiencing homelessness. It's also place where street whānau can get support and a free meal. Merge Café is a prime example of how we do things differently. 

In addition to Merge Café, we run a broad range of programmes and services for people of all ages and circumstances. We run parenting support programmes, operate early childhood centres and even offer in-home support to help families manage stress, budgets and housing. We have teams of peer support workers with lived experience who work alongside those struggling with mental health and addiction. 

We have a Youth Housing Support Team that works specifically with rangatahi. We also have services to support older people and those living with disabilities. Everything we do is about getting people housed and wrapping the right level of support around them so they can live a life best suited to them.
