Ricoh NZ help make a difference with Housing First

Ricoh New Zealand has been working with Lifewise to donated PCs for their Auckland City Centre Housing First Programme, an initiative that works with people experiencing chronic homelessness in the city centre.

Lifewise and the Auckland City Mission have more than 100 years’ experience working with people experiencing homelessness and hardship living in central Auckland. The two organisations are drawn together by common values and a shared commitment to end homelessness.

Alongside the University of Auckland, who provided monitors and keyboards, Ricoh contributed older, refurbished machines that were previously used internally to this fantastic project. This will help tenants of the Housing First initiative have access to a computer to apply for jobs, study and stay in touch with loved ones.
