Community Participation Services
Hohepa’s day service called “Helios” provides vocational and community participation services for people who live residentially at Hohepa and for independent clients who might live with their family, in their own home, or at a residential service provider other than Hohepa.
Hohepa Day Services aims are, briefly:
- To provide supportive day programmes for service users in an atmosphere that fosters respect for work and recognises the contribution of each individual
- To provide vocational training to enhance opportunities for supported and paid employment in the wider community
Hohepa Day Services is located at 18 Barrhead Place, Avondale.
“Helios”: In Greek mythology the sun was personified as Helios. In Plato’s Republic, Helios, the Sun, is the symbolic offspring of the idea of the Good.
Hohepa Auckland also provides transition services for ORRS (Ongoing and Reviewable Resourcing Scheme) funded students in their last year of school.
