Because you care, we can move forward.

The initial emergency phase that followed Cyclone Gabrielle flood damage is behind us. Thanks to your generosity, we have already received $40,000 in kind donations as well as support from cyclone relief funds. Thank you for caring and supporting our flatters.

To fully recover and make Rowan House suitable for housing young disabled people with high needs, we still need your support

For this next stage of the project, we need $100,000

Lessons learnt from the cyclone call for urgent action to enhance Rowan House’s resilience and preparedness. This includes landscaping modifications, uninterrupted power and water supply solutions, and improved kitchen accessibility. 

Under more normal circumstances, we would need to fundraise before doing any refurbishments, but since the flatters are already out of their homes due to the flood damage reinstatement work, it makes sense to move forward with futureproofing and improvements now. This way, we can avoid having to displace the flatters in the future.

Help us create a safer, more resilient home for the flatters at Rowan House.

Your donation today will see our flatters living to their full potential when they return home.
Thank you for your support.
