Te Puea hosts cross-party inquiry into homelessness

No te ra nei tīmata ai te pakirēhua a rōpū tōrangapu mo ngā take kainga kore ki te marae o Te Puea. I hua ake taua pakirēhua i te rōpū Reipa, Ngā Kākāriki me te Pāti Māori nā te kore aro a Nāhinara ki ngā tono kia tū he pakirēhua kōmiti whiriwhiri ki te whare pāremata.

Kua rongo ngā kaitōrangapū i ngā pānga kino o ngā take kainga kore.

Ko te heamana o Te Puea marae, a Huri Dennis, tētahi o ngā kaitono.

I whāngai te marae i ngā whānau kotahi rau whitu tekau ma whā te nui. E wha tekau ma rima ngā whānau kua whiwhi whare hou i te marae.

Hei tā Dennis, “We need to understand what the homeless problem is, how big it is, where it is and to relate it to causative issues. If we don’t know what the problem is we run the risk of throwing resources into the wrong place and into the wrong direction.”

E ai ki a Andrew Allan (Kuki Airangi), ‘Thanks to the marae.  Man, if it wasn't for them we'd be still out there. Now they've given us a house and everything.  Thanks to them.

I hua ake te pakirēhua i te rōpū Reipa, ngā Kākāriki me te Pāti Māori i muri i te whakakorenga a Nāhinara ki ngā tono a te āpitihana ki tētahi pakirēhua kōmiti whiriwhiri i te whare pāremata.

Hei tā MP Reipa, Phil Twyford, “We're here as parties who are committed to finding the ideas, the policies to fix this problem.”

E wha anō ngā huihuinga e toe ana. Ka tū aua hui ki Otautahi, Kaitaia, Tauranga me Te Whanganui a Tara. Ka puta he rīpoata i mua i te paunga o Oketopa. Kei roto i taua rīpoata ngā rongoa o ngā rōpū tōrangapū hei whakatikatika i ngā take kainga kore.
