COMMUNITY SERVICE -S.E.R.V.E.

Nau Mai Haere Mai - Welcome

Dear Reader


Community Service Connect Trust was born  out of seeing hearing and feeling the need to give back to our community in Auckland and throughout Aotearoa. 


With economic and social issues that has adversely impacted our Communities is evident and ongoing, with child poverty, homelessness, mental health, teen suicides, drug, alcohol addictions, and crime on the rise.


Our beautiful country is at the top of the global list for all the wrong reasons!, where have we gone wrong?. For a small population, rich in cultural and religious diversity, where have we gone wrong?.


I kept asking myself?, has our governing system failed our society?, not having properly taken care of the majority lower and middle class of our society?..

This is the very reason why I started our Not for Profit Service in mid 2017. 

As the social and economic inequality  has widened over the past 20 years!

HOW WE GOT STARTED;

It began with our pioneering small team of volunteers having made 30 home cooked meals to distribute to the homeless on Queen Street in Auckland CBD. From that time to now, we've continued our Homeless No-More Aotearoa  "Human Rights" Campaign in feeding and providing essential items to our homeless whanau(family), advocating and finding safe supportive housing for them. We're working on the planning and  development of  a holistic housing to well-being rehabilitation sanctuary where our Indigenous Te Ao Maori (Maori World) tikanga practises will be utilised in making our people well again, giving them hope and purpose to pursue wholesome meaningful lives for themselves,  whanau, hapu and iwi.


We have customised our services based on the economic and social needs of the communities we live in and serve in and around the motu(areas) of Aotearoa New Zealand.


We're strong in compassion with the intent and in practise to always wish well upon peoples health and well-being. Helping to effect positive outcomes for people and environment we live in is the most invaluable and rewarding feeling.



OUR MISSION

"Is to S.E.R.V.E." 

(Support* Educate* Respect* *Value *Empower*)



OUR STATEMENT

"People are the building blocks to society, and services are the  mortar that bind the two"



The Moral of this Statement


" When there are issues, don't think that they too hard to fix.

With each brick representing a person, mortar representing services, and the structure representing society, together we bind for the benefit of strengthening our Communities we live in.

Nelson Mandela 

Human rights activist and

former President of South Africa

"We think sometimes that poverty is only being hungry, naked and homeless.

The poverty of being unwanted, unloved and uncared for is the greatest poverty.

We must start in our own homes to remedy this kind of poverty." -

"Poverty is not only about income poverty, it is about the deprivation of economic and social rights, insecurity, discrimination, exclusion and powerlessness. That is why human rights must not be ignored but given even greater prominence in times of economic crisis." -
