Richard Didsbury talks about the fundraising efforts that went into HomeGround


Earlier this year, the Auckland City Mission opened up their new purpose built complex — HomeGround.

This project has been in the works for at least 20 years and offers unconditional and permanent housing to anyone who may need it.

A new book expands on the importance of this new building and the services it offers. HomeGround: The Story of a Building That Changes Lives was authored by Simon Wilson.

Richard Didsbury was directly involved with the HomeGround projects and he says that this building was made to tackle the problem of chronic homelessness in Auckland's CBD.
