Hunt family no longer homeless

By Te Ao Māori News

The Hunt family are no longer homeless.

Supporters can now pack down this temporary accommodation.

A stranger offered this house to the family when they heard of their circumstances.

The children are happy they get to stay at the same school, and that was Nellie's greatest desire and the reason she turned down other suitable accommodation.

The housing crisis is a daily struggle for Michael Gorman, the director of the Christchurch City Mission.

Michael Gorman says that government housing was already under stress in Christchurch, but the crisis started after the earthquakes.

Social worker, Brenda Lowe Johnson, helped the Hunt family in their search for a house.

This morning Teremoana Mokotupu-Reuben erected a tent in Waltham Park. Teremoana and his partner are homeless.
