The Hawke’s Bay community was the beginning of the Hōhepa Homes Trust in New Zealand, and is a thriving community.
Through living and working in community life, people with a disability will grow to experience satisfying lives with as much independence as possible. Curative education, social therapy, a rich cultural life and biodynamic land-use combine to make Hohepa unique in the way it encourages the development of body, soul and spirit for all.
Residential life at the Hōhepa Hawke’s Bay community usually begins at the school. Students remain in the school up to the age of 21, when they may move to the adult programmes.
The adult community life involves the residents in daily vocational programmes, ranging from craft skills for weaving, feltmaking, woodwork, candlemaking, farming and gardening. Life Plans include plans for personal development and achievement in these vocational areas, and are linked to NZQA accredited courses and certificates.
