All our initiatives are strengths-based and designed to help young people and families establish effective relationships while developing resilience. We work in association with Whangaparaoa Baptist and focus our work entirely on the Whangaparaoa Peninsula. While we maintain a strong Christian faith as people and allow that to inform us of our actions, our culture is that of growing people to find their identity in who they are in positive and meaningful ways
