comfortable home that enables her to meet her needs. Wellington Women’s House is a non-religious, women-centred organisation and is open to women of all backgrounds.
The property is owned by K?inga Ora and has capacity for up to 16 residents at any one time. The funding for our staff comes from rents, grants and donations. The running of the House is overseen by a volunteer Management Committee.
