Welcome to Hohepa Canterbury

Hohepa Canterbury, although part of the wider Hohepa Homes Trust Board, is semi–autonomous and thus undertakes its own strategic planning. The focus is on being a quality provider with sustainable services, such as living options, community participation, artistic therapies and agriculture.

Currently the community has grown to support 79 adult residents and up to 15 day attendees, generally on the two main sites at Barrington Street and Halswell Farm, with some houses situated close by in the wider community.

Administration, the Artemis Activity Centre and Recreation Centre all operate from the Barrington Street campus, nestled at the foot of the Port Hills amidst a setting of flowing lawns and gardens, complemented with a boundary stream and the occasional sculpture.

Nine kilometres away the Halswell Campus supports six residential homes, the Gaia Activity Centre and residents’ hobby gardens all placed within a picturesque farm setting. A community garden with raised garden beds and wheelchair access is being designed – a place for everyone to enjoy.
