Open Home Foundation - Otago/Southland
Our vision is for every child and young person growing up in a secure, loving family and receiving a depth of care which will bless them throughout their life.
- Christian social services.
The Open Home Foundation of New Zealand is a Child and Family Support Service that works within the provisions of the Children, Young Persons and Their Families Act 1989.
Open Home Foundation staff and volunteers are from a variety of Christian Church denominations. We respect the diversity of belief and ethnicity found within our nation.
We encourage children and parents to be proud of their family/whānau and cultural heritage. In particular, we have a commitment to work in a manner which is honouring to Māori and reflects the Treaty of Waitangi.
We know that children and young people are best cared for by their own family/whānau and we will work to strengthen families so they can nurture and care for their children and young people successfully.
