Threads of Caring
Drawing on archival and oral sources, Threads of Caring delves beneath the institution to the people at its heart and includes the stories of those who came for help, and the commitment and challenges faced by the ATWC’s Christian founders and those who followed them to meet those needs. An integral part of that caring focus has been, and continues to be, the work (paid and unpaid) of many women who raised funds, provided small luxuries, and supported the ATWC to become the organisation it is today.
The Anglican Trust for Women and Children is a major Auckland family charity and one of the city’s oldest.
We have been helping mothers, children and families since 1858 and are here for the long haul.
Through our family services, early education services and social work services we are committed to investing in Auckland’s children and building them the happy, healthy future they deserve.
We need ongoing funding and donations to keep providing our high quality services to Auckland’s community.
By supporting ATWC you will help us to keep putting families first.
