This is Key’s real life – other NZers aren’t so privileged
15 shifts in 12 months……permanently homeless since May.
I went to the Salvation Army yesterday on advice for emergency housing as my temporary accomodation had turned volatile. Just got off the phone with Salvation Army they can’t help me, they only take women and children up to the ages of 12, if you have a son who is over 12 they turn you away. My son is 15, he’s a lovely boy who I am very protective of. Same story at Napier Womens Refuge??!!
The Sallie said try a backpackers…..???
And National want Salvation Army to be a major part of Social Housing in the new era, something feels really wrong.
