Our stories

"20-year-old Ari has experienced many traumas and challenges throughout his early years and found himself in the care of Oranga Tamariki due to extensive family harm."
Breaking the cycle of family dysfunction
"After noticing that 10-year-old Ashton* would repeatedly ask his parents who would be collecting him from school each day, his school principal realised there might be an issue."
Fighting back against the internal monsters
"Esther* is a 72-year-old woman, who was married for 47 years. Unfortunately, the relationship became increasingly controlling and abusive, and Esther was granted a permanent protection order."
Rebuilding for a happier future
