Project Margin helps people who are living on the streets, couch-surfing or in unstable tenancies into housing of their own.
DCM provides ongoing outreach support until a tenancy can be managed and sustain independently.
Project Margin staff work closely with City Housing (WCC), Housing New Zealand and other agencies to find appropriate accommodation for clients.
A needs assessment is carried out when a service user signs up to Project Margin. Some of our service users come from situations of rough sleeping - literally from sleeping on the streets, in parks or the town belt. Many people have long term alcohol or drug addictions or mental health issues that work against a successful move into independent accommodation.
Project Margin is currently funded by the WCC as part of the 10 year Strategic Plan to address homelessness.
Please contact DCM if you require assistance - we're here to help.
