Operating across Tai Tokerau and Tāmaki Makaurau, from Cape Reinga to the Bombay’s, Habitat for Humanity Northern Region is dedicated to building and managing affordable housing, delivering essential repair and renovation services, and advocating for those in housing need. Their work is executed in collaboration with partners, emphasizing the creation of strength, stability, and independence through the provision of decent shelter.
Feltex NZ proudly lends support through the provision of replacement carpet to families facing significant need. In partnership with Habitat for Humanity, Feltex identifies families experiencing considerable hardship and challenging circumstances.
Marino and family, recognizing their housing challenges, chose to apply to Habitat’s Home Repair Programme. Their priorities included essential amenities such as hot running water, a functional shower, and the necessary plumbing. The transformative impact of the renovations orchestrated by Habitat far exceeded their expectations. The comprehensive overhaul included a new bathroom, kitchen, laundry, exterior repairs, fresh paint, replacement windows and, significantly, new carpet and underlay.
Previously without carpet in their bedrooms, the family endured the discomfort of winter breezes through floorboards. The hallway and lounge featured old, threadbare, and damaged carpet. Marino, once compelled to wear two pairs of socks to bed, now revels in the warmth and coziness of upgraded bedrooms, free from the chill. Thanks to Feltex and Dunlop Flooring, the family now enjoys high-quality carpet and underlay, professionally installed, ensuring a warmer and healthier home environment.
