Friends of Monte - Monte values the long and enduring relationships that have been made with the many individuals, schools, parishes, groups, organisations, and funders. They provide a strong foundation of support and whanaungatanga. Support comes in many different shapes and sizes, such as donated food, household goods and furniture, grants, donations, land, houses, time, mentoring, and the building of relationships. “The Friends of Monte” was launched by Mayor Dame Catherine Tizard, and Helen Clark, MP for Mt Albert, at a garden party marking the 10th anniversary of the Trust.
The Friends continue to support us, demonstrating a shared commitment from many individuals to the vision and work of the Trust. The Trust depends upon the support of whanau, and the Friends of Monte to enable it to continue its essential housing services.
