We believe that, together, we can end homelessness here in Wellington. Our number one priority is getting people off the streets and into sustainable living arrangements, then supporting them on their journey to greater well-being. In 2019 we celebrate our 50th birthday.
If you'd like to support our work with people in our city who are experiencing homelessness or are at risk of homelessness, please consider the options below.
Remember that for every $1 you donate, you may be able to claim 33.33¢ as a tax deduction at the end of the year. See Inland Revenue Tax Credit for Donations.
Would you like to purchase a “welcome pack” for a person who is moving from homelessness in to their new home?
At DCM, we call the people we work with taumai, meaning to settle. Supporting taumai to sustain their housing is an important part of the work we do, so we have put together a “welcome pack” of items to help them care for their new whare.
$100 will pay for one pack. If you can help, please donate to our bank account - details below. Use 'Welcome' as a code.

Donate food and groceries
To donate food, please drop items in our food bin at New World Chaffers at any time, or bring them directly in to DCM at 2 Lukes Lane, Te Aro on weekdays. This year we are especially short of food at our foodbank. Don't know what to bring in? Tinned stews, tins of fish or corned beef, and pasta or rice snack meals are always in short supply. But we also welcome any other items you wish to donate to the foodbank.
