We've started accepting & distributing fresh & perishable foods to local schools & families in need. Until we can find a freezer we are limited on the amount of food we can accept. Any help or if you have an idea on getting one I would love to hear it.

The hoops I have to jump through to get on "the list" is ridiculous to say the least, what steps are you taking to find a house, are you looking for a rental, where do you look, do you have family or friends you can stay with? I want my own home! The cost of market rent is disgusting & watching rental owners capitalise on the housing shortage is disgusting. I get people need to pay their mortgages but really! The other problem I have is our pets; they're part of our family & are coming with us no matter where we go. As of the 8th of May we won't have a place to live, I'm told to re-home our pets, look further afield, bunk in with someone else. I go to WINZ next week to see if they can find us a motel to stay in until I find something more permanent. The stress it's put me under is huge, I don't sleep, my son cry's every time he thinks about it (& he's a tough little nut!) I don't know what to pack, what to sell, or where to put it all in the interim. I do know that if it comes to the crunch & we have to live in our car with our pets I'll pull in next to Bob & co in the car park on Marine Parade & we'll be safe as house's excuse the pun. When we deliver the little bit of food we get donated on a Friday night to these guys the camaraderie is heartwarming, they take care of each other, nobody is out in the cold (another pun) in that car park. Not ideal living for anyone especially after they've worked all day but the best that's available to them & now it turns out to my family. Something must be done, build more homes, even a cap on rental costs would help. SOMETHING MUST BE DONE!
