Creating safe and healthy homes together



Habitat for Humanity builds strength, stability, and self-reliance through shelter. Every day they work towards making New Zealand a place where everyone has a decent place to live.

Every year, Habitat for Humanity makes a difference for thousands of New Zealanders living in sub-standard housing conditions. Habitat works with families to address their housing need by repairing and renovating homes. They also make home ownership a reality for many families through their Progressive Home Ownership programme.


Why we support Habitat for Humanity

At AMI we know that safe and stable homes help to build strong and healthy families, as well as more resilient communities. AMI supports Habitat’s philosophy that everyone deserves a decent place to live. Our partnership aims to help Habitat get closer to their target of changing the lives of 75,000 kiwis, living in sub-standard housing, over the next three years.



Warm, healthy homes

Heating a home can be difficult and sometimes costly for many low-income families. As a community housing provider, Habitat responds to communities throughout Aotearoa with unique solutions. This includes creating warmer, healthier homes, through initiatives such as installing heat pumps, hot water insulation and providing curtains. The Habitat Curtain Bank offers low-income Auckland families free double-lined, full length curtains for their homes. Through upcycling good quality curtains at its own curtain making facility, curtains are made to suit the specific needs of each family they work with.
