Arndt House is a residential home catering for up to 5 young people between the ages of 12-16 years.
We cater for boys and girls, although in recent years the majority of our clients have been young ladies.
Arndt House is a safe, loving environment where Young People receive support, care, protection and guidance for their future. Each young person has a Destiny Plan for their stay, and the staff and management help them toward their stated goals.
The length of stay varies according the need, but some young people can be in Arndt House for over a year. Others for just a period of weeks.
All staff are professional and continue to receive ongoing training in the skills required for their work.
Our Manager of Social Services, Nynette Martin oversees the overall welfare of all the young people in our care, and we have two full time house parents and additional relief staff to care for the day to day running of the home.
Most of the clients are referred through Oranga Tamariki but we can consider Respite Care for the community if space is available and the young person meets our intake criteria.
