Before moving into his new Housing New Zealand home in the Auckland suburb of Meadowbank, Terrence says his health was getting worse. “Most of my benefit was being spent on day-to-day survival, which left little else for finding a permanent home, looking after my health and finding a job.”

Twenty-seven-year-old Te Aorangi Corbett can barely articulate how she felt when she moved into her new, two-bedroom home in Waterview's Torea Place late last year.

Te Aorangi spent some time in emergency housing and then most recently three years in an old state house in New Lynn before being allocated a new house in Waterview.

Te Aorangi's home is one of 17 two-, three- and four-bedroom houses which have replaced three 1940s brick duplexes, houses that were old, cold and damp.
