About Our Auction
Organisers of an Auckland Pillars charity auction are hoping to raise more than $40,000 to support children with a parent in prison.
23,000 Kiwi children have a Mum and/or Dad in prison.
Children of prisoners are around ten times more likely to go to prison than other kiwi kids, they are the 'vulnerable of the vulnerable.' Without proper support, children of prisoners can become socially isolated with a lack of with lack of aroha (love), awhi (care) and hope for their future. This can lead to a pathway of destruction.
Pillars works with these children and their families to help them all have lives which are positive and contribute to healthy and successful futures.
We do this through programmes which range across mentoring for the children and wrap around services for the families and whanau. We work in prisons and the community and have a team of well trained, experienced staff around the country.
Pillars is committed to helping every child become the best person they choose to be in the future
