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.
