by helping whānau through prefab building process
A new business aims to help address poverty and homelessness in Northland by walking whānau through the process of getting a prefabricated house.
Twenty-year-old Matenga Ashby heads the Kaikohe-based business, PreHomes, which gives whānau a hand-up to get their own liveable prefab house – from sorting issues on communally owned whenua to getting building consent.
Ashby said the aim is to address the problems of homelessness and poverty that he saw in his home town, which often led to sickness.
