Compass Housing Services NZ is delivering a new model of community housing properties and services in New Zealand. As a not for profit, regulated Community Housing Provider (CHP), we offer specialist tenancy and property management services in Auckland and the regional north island, from Wellington to Taranaki.
Our placed based approach to tenancy and property management services, focuses on improving the social and economic circumstances of our residents, as well as the communities in which they live; by delivering new and high-quality housing in mixed tenure communities.
Compass Housing Services offers a range of community development activities for residents designed to foster social inclusion and personal development. Our focus on empowerment and support is a major contributor to our high resident satisfaction levels over the past four years of our operation.
We partner with government and development partners to fund and deliver new models of secure, long term affordable, permanent housing.
We employ a People Place Performance approach to property and tenancy management.
People-focused programmes which enable social regeneration and increase resident social and economic participation.
Place making initiatives which strengthen our residents’ sense of connection to their homes, neighbourhoods and communities.
Performance assessments are carried out monthly using our bespoke IT system, which ensures continuous assessment on what we are doing and whether it is making a difference for residents and the places we manage.
Housing is where we started, the heart of our work. We take pride in our tenancy and asset management services.
Access to adequate housing is a universal human right. But what we do is more than housing, its about people, the lives they live, the community they live in and providing a place they call ‘home’.
We aim to optimise the potential of the people who live in our properties. We support their dreams and aspirations, giving them opportunities to grow and become who they want to be.
Communities are created through a shared sense of belonging and connectedness. Connected communities care about and support the well-being of the people who live in them. Our endeavours assist in connecting communities.
We have an active role to play in influencing the future of housing and sustainable communities. We act to support our clients and influence others to achieve a better future. We look for sustainability, in business and in the environment. We measure our success in the impact we leave on the environment and how well we support our clients to determine their own future.
