At Te Mapua we care, love, nurture, guide, teach, mentor, encourage, clothe, feed, comfort, and pray for each child we are fortunate to share life with, through a range of community, School and Residential based support programmes. Agencies and organisations working with children in need can refer children to our programmes.
