Short-Term Emergency Housing

VisionWest provides Short Term Emergency housing at an affordable rent for those in desperate need. Our properties are located across West and South Auckland.

Short Term Emergency Housing is for those in desperate need. There is an eligibility criteria for VisionWest housing and unfortunately we are unable to provide refuge or mental health housing services. We also have an agreement with MSD to have rental costs paid directly to VisionWest whilst people stay in the Emergency and Transitional accommodation. The Community Housing team will help set this up.

Each of our properties available for short term emergency housing are fully furnished and equipped two and three bedroom units with their own kitchen, dining, bathroom and laundry facilities. The maximum stay in one of our Short Term properties is normally three months.

VisionWest has two eligibility criteria for Community Housing, they are:

- All candidates must be registered on the MSD (Ministry of Social Development) Housing Register, and

- Be considered a low income family with dependents.

Our work is always growing and evolving.
