Atareira Transitional Housing has been responding to the needs of homeless people in Wellington since 2003.  We offer two houses which provide emergency accommodation for individuals for up to 12 weeks and three houses providing transitional housing for individuals for up to 6 months.  We also have a limited number of transitional homes for families in a variety of communities in the Wellington Region.   

While staying in a Transitional Housing home, residents take care of their own basic living needs, including:

- personal hygiene

- cleaning and cooking

- transport etc


Staff will work alongside residents to develop a Housing Action Plan to work towards finding future accommodation.‚Äč

We encourage the support that residents receive from other services during their time with Easy Access Housing.

Please contact us for more information.
