HHI Providers

The Healthy Homes Initiative operates using locality planning, where different regions have their own coordination hubs and kaimahi. Locality planning helps communities to receive support tailored to their whānau. Below the different HHI providers are outlined. 

HHI is a nationwide service!

If you don't see a location tag where you live, pick the closest HHI provider! Our service operates across the entire motu - this is where our hubs are based!
