Community Services | Central & West Auckland | Lifewise Merge Café

Community Services

Lifewise Community Services include our Family Services based in New Lynn, the Youth Transition to Adulthood service, the Auckland City Centre Housing First project, and Merge Cafe on K’ Road.

Family Services

Lifewise in New Lynn helps families in West Auckland. We offer support for counselling, budgeting, and also parenting courses.

Lifewise is one of Auckland’s largest and most experienced foster care providers. We always put the needs of the child first and we have a strong focus on early intervention. Working with younger children helps to reduce the risk of trauma caused by domestic violence, homelessness, or other matters.

Lifewise also runs six-week parenting courses at our New Lynn office regularly throughout the year. These courses offer practical tips or inspiration to parents or anyone planning to become a parent.

Lifewise Merge Cafe

Lifewise’s Merge Cafe is a community space for Aucklanders from all walks of life. For just a few dollars a meal, the cafe serves wholesome, nutritious food and barista-made coffee.

Merge Cafe also supports people who are sleeping rough, experiencing hardships, homelessness, or marginalisation. We support them so they can begin to lead independent lives.
