Our Programmes & Services

  • Progressive Home Ownership

    Under the terms of the programme, families pay an affordable rent, paying down the purchase price of the home over time until they can afford a commercial loan.
  • Home Repair Programme

    In partnership with BNZ, Habitat offers no-interest loans to homeowners in need of support with critical repairs or maintenance, with affordable repayments over five years.
  • Community Rentals

    We provide affordable and stable rental homes. We are a social landlord, which sets us apart and guides us to allocate our warm, dry, safe and secure homes based on need.
  • Skinny Jump low-cost broadband

    Low-cost prepaid broadband service for eligible Kiwi homes.
  • Freeman Court - Independent living

    Independent living for older people in the heart of Te Awamutu.
