Peter Humphreys thinks so, and he's spent the past 11 years managing nightshelters in Hamilton.

"There was a paternal or maternal person running it, and they'd keep an eye on [residents], and they'd have a community," he said, "if they misbehaved they were told off, and hygiene was kept up."

Humphreys is about to step down after spending more than a decade of helping people who wouldn't otherwise have a place to sleep. Read more here.

Poll: Should NZ schools have gender-neutral uniforms?

I’m thinking of offering this workshop next in Chartwell. Let me know if you might be interested if I do.
:
FREEDOM FROM DIETS. Raglan. A healthy weight can be achieved & maintained without dieting, calorie counting or weighing & measuring food. In this workshop, we will discuss why diets don't work for most people and what Science says is the healthiest food plan for most humans. We will tease apart the diet related facts from the diet related myths & propaganda.
.
Come along and learn the classic reasons why people become over weight and specific skills and strategies that can help bring weight back under control. We will also look at exercise; why it is important for good health, but why it is not very helpful for weight loss.
.
Dr. Heidi Douglass is a registered Clinical Psychologist with 35 years of experience in the field of Psychology. She is also certified in Plant Based Nutrition by the T. Colin Campbell Institute of Cornell University.
