"This experience gave me a fresh insight into how people became homeless"

We partner with diverse communities for social change.

In 2003 a group of people connected to the Edmund Rice Network got chatting. Many had spent time volunteering internationally and returned to Aotearoa questioning how to respond to complex and diverse social justice challenges. From this question grew the seeds of the ERJANZ Charitable Trust which was formalised to answer these questions as an activist community.

"This is an important, powerful step away from a punitive and ultimately ineffective justice system"
