Tuku atu, tuku mai - the spirit and practice of generosity and reciprocity - is very important to us here at DCM. Being able to give as well as receive enhances the mana of all of us. Over this Christmas period, many of you have generously provided gifts for our taumai – people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. And so now it is time for us to offer YOU a gift. One of the gifts our taumai can share is the gift of their stories, the stories of what success looks like, of the life-changing work that is possible thanks to your support and our shared commitment to ending homelessness. Wayne's view It’s a stunner of a view from Wayne’s 10th floor whare. He can gaze out across Te Aro to Wellington Harbour and Mt Victoria. It’s almost the perfect reverse of his view during the winter of 2018. That was from the slopes of Mt Victoria, from a tent hidden in the bush.   Read Wayne's story here. Enjoy, reflect, and know that your support has made this all possible. <!-- --> 250 dental sessions This month, we ran our 250th dental session here at DCM. What a phenomenal gift to the most marginalised people in our city this service is. "I've been putting up with sore front teeth for eight years and recently haven’t been able to eat properly. Within an hour of walking in to DCM, all of my problem teeth had been extracted. The dentist was kind, polite and thorough and I’m just so happy with the result. The alternative would have been to keep putting up with the pain for another eight years." (Simon) "I came in to DCM to talk about housing, and heard about the DCM dental service. I haven’t seen a dentist since I was a child – I extract my own teeth whenever they become too painful. Wow, I just feel so good after seeing the dentist here." (Robert) Bill ended up in the Night Shelter after family problems compounded by his meth addiction saw him sleeping at a reserve. He came to DCM after he heard from other taumai about the hospitality available here. Like all taumai who come to DCM Bill was asked if he needed a dental appointment - and now off meth he had started to notice that he was experiencing severe dental pain. Bill was able to be treated and though he has a long road ahead on his journey to wellbeing, he is now free from the worst pain caused by 20+ years of addiction. We have a lengthy waiting list for dental appointments, and urgently need more dentists and dental assistants to become part of our amazing team. Please ask your own dentist if they volunteer at DCM – if they do, lift them up for the very practical way in which they are part of the solution to homelessness. If they don’t, encourage them to get in touch. <!-- --> Together we can end homelessness - at Christmas and in the New Year At this time of year, we are reminded every day of the kindness and commitment of the people of Wellington to our taumai and our mahi. If you follow us on Facebook, you will have seen some of our stories about the range of people and organisations who have brought in food, gifts, baking, donations, their time and their skills. From our friends at Live Wires who paid for all the items we need to prepare 200 Christmas hampers for taumai, to those of you who offered to buy us something we really need and can enjoy together (yes, we were able to purchase an entire new set of chairs for everyone who spends time at Te Hāpai!), to the people of Ngaio Union Church who bought gifts for taumai spending their first Christmas in their new home, to the many locals and workplaces who brought in supplies for our foodbank, to the Nota Bene concert at Prefab...the list goes on and on. As we move into a new year, you may like to reflect on new ways you can become involved in 2020 – here is some food for thought. Thank you, Wellington, for the many practical ways in which you are part of the solution to homelessness. Ngā mihi o te Tau Hou. <!-- --> Please help us get the message out there!
