    Our vision 

    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 

    Our mission


    • quality 
    • child-centred 
    • family-focused 
    • 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.
