It has been a very special month at DCM. Many of you have been following the journey our taumai have embarked on, enroling to vote, discussing the issues and practicing voting. The polling booth at DCM during election week capped months of activity designed to inform and motivate taumai to have their say. More than 100 taumai showed they counted when they voted at DCM, and many others voted in their own communities. And yes, for many of them, it was the very first time they had voted. We know you want to hear much more about how this has gone, more than we can share in this brief update. And so we invited DCM kaitautoko (supporter), Lee-Anne Duncan to spend some time with us during election week and to help us tell the story. Lee-Anne spoke with several taumai, and you will enjoy reading their reflections. Click here to read this story! And here we also introduce you to some more taumai who voted at DCM. Pete was the very first person to vote in the General Election at DCM’s polling booth. Pete has been supported by DCM for many years; he is now housed and our wonderful Sustaining Tenancies team work very closely with him. Pete had never voted before. Rochelle has begun doing some paid work at DCM this year, and this has made her think about the example she is setting to other taumai. “This was the first time I have voted, even though I’ve always encouraged my children to vote. I’ve been thinking about our taumai, and seen how easy voting has been for them. I wanted to take part, as they have been, to help set an example as a peer support worker. My kids said ‘Good on you mum’! It felt really, really good to vote, and have my voice heard.” Tony grew up in Iraq, and has faced many challenges in his life. English is also not his first language. Aileen from DCM’s Aro Mai Housing First team is Tony’s keyworker, supporting him to settle in to a home and to work through other issues so that he can thrive in all aspects of his life. Aileen was able to go in with Tony to support him to vote. Tony was very proud, keen to have his photo taken and happy for us to share his photo with you. Many of you know and love Te Amo and so you will understand how thrilled we were that he was able to vote here at DCM. Te Amo has voted before, but has sometimes found the experience difficult and frustrating. At DCM's polling booth, he was in a place he knows well and had the support of people he knows well, to ensure that his voice was heard. <!-- --> Celebrating with Seasonal Kai Voting week at DCM ended with a special celebration, and an acknowledgement of the courage of taumai who had voted for the first time ever, or for the first time in a long time. This day was chosen for kōanga seasonal kai, when the community comes together to share food and mark the change of season. This time the kai was provided by the Press Hall food court vendors. It was a very fitting way to lift up all of those who had voted, and all those who had supported them to do so. <!-- --> Foodbank appeal – can you help? DCM Christmas Foodbank Appeal Saturday 21 November 2020 Here at DCM, we are very reliant on the two large annual Foodbank Appeals to keep our shelves stocked. However this year, the winter appeal was unable to proceed, as it coincided with the COVID lock-down. This year’s Christmas Foodbank Appeal will therefore be even more important than ever. We need a large team of volunteers to play a variety of roles on Saturday 21 November – can you help in this way? Please get in touch by emailing matthew@dcm.org.nz We also encourage you to head down to New World at Chaffers, New World Metro on Willis Street, or New World Newtown on this day – and to encourage your friends and family to do the same. You can pick up a copy of our shopping list from one of the volunteers and select some items to purchase, for us to share with our taumai over the busy Christmas and summer period. <!-- --> Please help us get the message out there! Forward this email on to everyone you can think of who may be interested in how to respond to homelessness, and just generally people who are passionate about Wellington. <!-- --> Support DCM! Nāku te rourou, nāu te rourou, ka ora ai te iwi With your basket and my basket, the people will thrive <!-- --> Copyright © 2020 DCM. All rights reserved.
