The new year also marks a new beginning for DCM; it is our great pleasure to introduce our new Director, Stephen Turnock. Of Ngāi Tahu descent, Stephen brings 20 years of experience in the social service sector, working at both government and community organisations. In his most recent role as General Manager – Operations of the Porirua Whānau Centre (one of six Family Social Service Centres in New Zealand), Stephen oversaw a team of social workers, counsellors, a youth team and a family violence prevention group. In addition, he managed the social housing portfolio, providing sustainable housing for whānau in the Porirua region. Having led projects such as the Whānau Ora Education Initiative and the Porirua Tiaki Tangata Violence Prevention Collective, Stephen has also successfully cultivated numerous partnerships with local iwi, community service providers and public sector organisations. Ko Takitimu tōku waka Ko Waihao tāku awa Ko Kāti Māmoe tāku hapū Nō Ōtautahi ahau Ko Waiho tāku marae Ko Kāi Tahu tāku iwi  Ko Stephen tāku ingoa. “Throughout my career I have strongly believed in the concept of mana motuhake - for whānau to thrive, they need to be supported towards resilience, self-determination and control over their own future. This is one of the things which attracted me to DCM, an organisation which shares this value and is committed to ensuring that the most vulnerable people in our communities gain access to housing and the wider supports that enable them to thrive, and to achieve the goals they have for their own lives. I’m very excited and honoured to be leading an organisation that is passionately supporting the most marginalised people in our communities, whilst also advocating for the resources and supports needed for them to thrive. In my first weeks here, I have taken the opportunity to sit back, observe and build an understanding of what DCM does and why this organisation has been so successful. I want to build on the awesome mahi which has gone on here before me. I also look forward to working closely with the wide range of partners and supporters who form part of the 'together' in our tag-line – 'together we can end homelessness'.” <!-- --> Connecting and being lifted up over the holiday period Over recent weeks, many of us have taken a break and enjoyed some lovely days out – while on holiday elsewhere in Aotearoa, or here in our own city. Our taumai don’t often get an opportunity to head away “on holiday”, but we have been keen to lift them up in other ways at this time. Thank you to all those of you who provided some money so that taumai could enjoy a day out over the summer. Here we share some photos from last week when we were able to treat a group of men to an outing to Strike bowling alley, followed by a Turkish lunch together in Petone. The men loved getting out and meeting new people, and for some, it was their first time bowling. Taumai and kaimahi alike agreed that it had been an “amazing” day and a great way to start a new year. Over the holiday period, our kaimahi shared their favourite moments of 2020 and their hopes for our taumai for 2021 via our Facebook page. You can enjoy reading them again - or for the first time, by visiting DCM’s Facebook page here. <!-- --> New year, new look, new hope Last year we shared with you Joanne’s story, and reflected on the role which kaiawhina – people with lived experience of homelessness – can play on team DCM. Recently three of our kaiawhina were lifted up by a styling session at Dress for Success, one of many organisations with a kaupapa that totally meshes with DCM’s. Their vision is of a world where women do not live in poverty, and are treated with dignity and respect. We hear from Fiona – “It was the first time ever that I have had someone dress me. I loved it; it was fantastic. My self-confidence was out the gate, and it was so good for my self-esteem. I have been working at DCM for almost a year now, but the others have joined the team more recently. So it was great for them to have some new gear, to feel so positive about the future. I can’t tell you how much it has meant to me to have this job, and I just love it! I can be working in Te Hāpai in the mornings, interacting with taumai. I’m there to listen, observe and support. In the afternoons, I may be out with other kaimahi on home visits. We have a lot of taumai who have recently been housed, and we go in to support them. We’re all part of the solution to homelessness. And the work we do here at DCM is such a big part of that. I am proud and privileged to be part of this team.” Kia ora rawa atu – big thanks to our friends at Dress for Success for lifting up our kaiawhina in this way. If you would like to donate clothes to support their mahi, or get involved in some other way visit their website. <!-- --> Please help us get the message out there!
