As part of the Male Room services, the newly established Whare Haumaru (Safe Place) is a drop in centre for the homeless community of Nelson, as well as anyone else wishing to use the facility. Open from 8am till 4pm Monday to Friday we have a shower, washing machine, drier and a full kitchen that can be used. The kitchen can be used for free breakfasts when available. We also receive Kai Rescue (food that’s available to take home) which is available from 11am each day which is open to anyone in need of some extra food to help them through.) Anyone is always welcome to come in for a coffee or cup of tea and a chat.
A big thank you goes out to the Rotary Club of Nelson for their help in getting this whare built.
Our onsite manager is there who can help with Housing First referrals and linking in with our other Male Room services.
